Top Videos by Moncler – Innovative sportswear, sick stunts and breathtaking scenery

Top Videos of Moncler – Sporty winter clothing. Exciting must haves and fluffy down jackets. If you want to be fashionable and trendy for the winter, there is no way around the luxury brand. Meanwhile, even Hollywood stars like Will Smith advertise for the fashion empire. Take a look at the most blatant advertising clips from Monclers.

Moncler – comfort and luxury fashionably combined

The brand was founded in 1952 by René Ramillion in Grenoble, France. Initially, he produced equipment for mountain expeditions. Success was not long in coming: the young people of Italy’s upper class discovered the voluminous down jackets for themselves. This quickly became a must have and in the last decades Moncler developed into one of the biggest Italian luxury brands.

Noble fashion for sporty performance in a class of its own

Moncler stands for the perfect symbiosis of sport and fashion. The riskier, the better. This applies here not only to the original and extravagant fashion, but also to the advertising clips. It never gets boring in the videos of Monlcer.

Innovative accessories against a breathtaking backdrop

An exciting video with an outstanding scenery in the “Caramel Land”. The short clip was filmed with a mobile phone. How they experience an adventure like Sand Skiing and present the new Moncler Collection 2017, you can see here in the video.

Sporty down jackets in the freezing cold

Moncler has always been known for its high performance sporting goods. The founder of Moncler, René Ramillon, had already developed padded sleeping bags, camping tents and anoraks together with his friend, sports equipment dealer and ski instructor André Vincent. To this day Moncler designs sportswear, which you can see in this spectacular video.

Moncler for the whole family

Even though Moncler has been focusing on sportswear for decades, the family cannot be forgotten. So there are now not only innovative down jackets for children, but also for dogs. Here you can see how this looks like.

Givenchy’s advertising clips are just as exciting as the runway shows and emotional, like the reports on the comet-like rise of the fashion designer. We have summarized our highlights for you here.

Givenchy: Fashion that sets the trends of tomorrow

Founded by Hubert de Givenchy, the luxury brand Givenchy has been revolutionizing the fashion industry since the 1950s. Audrey Hepburn’s “little black dress”, Madonna’s stage outfits and Kim Kardashian’s wedding dress – they all made statements and the fashion brand’s list of successes is long. Even after the death of founder and fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy, the brand continues to enjoy great popularity. In addition to clothing and accessories, the brand has also placed great emphasis on Givenchys’ unique fragrance collections since 1988.

Haute couture, ready-to-wear and lovely fragrances

Reversed gender roles, original storylines and dramatic cinematography. Givenchy’s commercials are innovative, modern and daring and always leave a lasting impression. Check out our favourite Givenchys commercials here.

Modern men’s collection with a touch of retro

This short film by Alice Kong, shot at Villa Palmieri in Florence, Italy, shows the activities the boys spend the summer of their lives wearing the new “Nouveau Glitch” collection. This collection, designed by Clare Waight Keller, with its bright colors perfectly matches the environment of the video and the extraordinary models.

Dreamy mannequins in colourful Haute Couture

For the annual haute couture collection, Givenchys’ designers chose the colours blue and red for the 2019 collection. This was also reflected in the advertising clip. Almost unreal, the models marched through a surrealistic cloud landscape. You can see the masterpiece directed by Neil Krog here.

Emancipated prêt-à-porter in front of a seductive backdrop

Even fashion can be heavenly. This was proven by Givenchys’ Creative Director with the autumn collection 2019 under the name “Winter of Eden”. The paradise of Adam and Eve is thus given a feminist twist that is also evident in the advertising clip. Watch the clip here.

Sensual Eau De Toilette with a charming storyline

The promotional video for the popular perfume Eau de Toilette is quasi a short film about a young man at a boring party. At this party he meets a woman and then disappears dancing with her in the mysterious alleys of the city. This masculine and self-confident fragrance, created by fragrance designer Paul Leger, has been a hit since its release in 1974.

Famous advertising faces – Ariana Grande, Marc Jacobs & Co.

Hubert de Givenchy’s extravagant fashion has also been famous among the stars and starlets of Hollywood for decades. It’s no wonder then that even the most beautiful and successful people in the entertainment industry can regularly be seen in his commercials. Take a look at our highlights here.

Ariana Grande is the new face of the Givenchy campaign

The singer and actress Ariana Grande is “the new face of Givenchy” she says in an interview how much she admires the brand and how proud she is to be part of it. In this short video, Ariana Grande is filmed from behind by British fashion photographer Craig McDean and thus presented to the world as the new face of the Givenchy brand.

Emotional campaign of the extra class with Charlotte Rampling & Marc Jacobs

A very unusual video filmed in a film studio, with an elderly lady showing her acting skills to the camera. She also teaches a young man how to act in front of the camera. What the last words of the video “Give me Givenchy” mean, you can find out here in the clip.

Aaron Taylor as romantic heartbreaker for Givenchy’s new perfume

Aaron Taylor-Johnson is a young British actor who starred in films such as “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, “Kick-Ass”, “Savages” and “Godzilla”. In his younger years he also promotes the new perfume “Gentleman Givenchy”. This perfume stands for his masculine elegance and was developed by the company’s founder Hubert de Givenchy.

Charming advertising clip as a homage to Givenchy’s muse Audrey Hepburn

The promotional video by the famous photographer David Sims. About the perfume L’interdit, was shot in the Paris metro and has over 14 million views and is therefore (by far) the most clicked promotional video of Givenchy. Re-interpreted by Dominique Ropion, Anne Flipo and Fanny Bal almost 50 years later, L’Interdit is the first perfume Givenchy launched and a product of the legendary friendship between Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn.

Behind the scenes of the French fashion empire

Hardly a day on the set is like any other, especially when you have icons of modernity like Ariana Grande as an advertising face. Here you can see what a day looks like in front of and behind the cameras. Also: who was Hubert de Givenchy and how did it come to success? These questions are also answered here.

Vera Wang – Dazzling career of an ageless fashion icon

Vera Wang’s career is unique. She is characterized by hard work, assertiveness and her idea to revolutionize the world of weddings and bridal fashion. Compared to other famous designers, Wang’s international breakthrough was a long time coming:

A Chinese woman from Manhattan

The daughter of wealthy Chinese immigrants, Vera Wang was born in New York City on June 27, 1949. She spent her childhood mainly on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, where she attended the elite school Chapin as well as Sarah Lawrance College. Here she enrolled in art history after a failed career as a professional figure skater.

  • She went to Chaplin Ivy League School and Sarah Lawrence College…
  • Originally, Wang aspired to a career as a figure skater

From Vogue to Ralph Lauren

Her college degree was followed by a career as senior fashion editor of one of the most renowned fashion magazines of modern times: Vogue. After 15 years as a fashion journalist, she left the magazine to accept a position as design director with none other than Ralph Lauren.

  • After college, she worked for Vogue
  • After 15 years she worked as design director for Ralph Lauren

A business woman becomes a designer

After a short time, however, the then 41-year-old Wang decided to make another career change and opened her first own bridal fashion boutique in the upscale Carlyle Hotel on Madison Avenue in New York City. A year earlier, she had married her long-time friend Arthur Becker and found that the number of bridal fashions was simply too limited. In order to save other women from their own bridal fashion dilemma, Wang now offered couture dresses by a wide variety of designers in her boutique – from Guy Laroche to Christian Dior.

Over the years, not only her prominent clientele grew, but also her passion as a fashion designer, and so a few years later Wang published her first own bridal fashion collection. Characteristic here: Streamlined and sophisticated bridal gowns for every type of woman.

  • 1990: Wang marries and opens her first own bridal boutique
  • She sells couture dresses by Guy Laroche and Christian Dior among others
  • Finally she designs her first own collection

Comet-like rise

In 1994 – four years after opening her boutique – Wang first attracted international attention when she designed a hand-beaded ensemble for the Olympic Games for figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. Shortly thereafter, her first collection of elegant evening wear followed. The name Vera Wang was no longer an unknown quantity and from now on adorned the front pages of various fashion magazines worldwide. Her love for wedding dresses remained the focus of attention.

  • 1994: Wang designs the outfit for figure skater Nancy Kerrigan
  • The first collection of elegant evening wear follows
  • The name Wangs has now established itself in the Haute Couture

Established icon of fashion and pop culture

In 2002 Wang also conquered the world of perfumery and launched her first fragrance. Since then, she has expanded her business and now designs lingerie, jewelry, household products and even desserts. In 2006, in cooperation with the department store chain Kohl’s, she released an affordable collection of everyday clothes called Simply Vera, which is still very popular today.

Wang is also always present on the red carpet. For years, her designs have adorned the bodies of Hollywood’s cream-de-la-creme. Her dresses, which always combine modernity and tradition almost synoptically, are mainly worn at film premieres and award ceremonies. Her main clients include actresses such as Halley Berry, Charlize Theron and Meg Ryan.

Vera Wang talks about the beginning of her career, the pressure in the fashion industry and her love for her profession. Watch her interview with the New York Times here.

Subversive wedding dresses, sweet scents and sparkling rings

Must Haves from Wangs: Vera Wang is known for her bridal fashion, but since her international breakthrough she has also designed rings, fragrances, lingerie and evening wear. Check out the highlights here.

Wedding dresses in a class of their own

When you think of Vera Wang, you think of one thing above all: wedding dresses. She is still considered a famous designer in her field and impresses wedding couples all over the world with each new collection. Her customers always enjoy dresses painstakingly created with the finest fabrics in the world and adorned with high-quality details such as bows and pearls.

What makes Wang’s dresses special

Innovative, elegant and yet timeless: Wang knows about the needs of her customers and thus manages to revolutionize the world of bridal fashion every time. Her dresses are timeless, refined and yet simple, sometimes traditional in white and sometimes rebellious in red. Wang does not flinch from dark colours like grey or black. What was once considered unfit for the altar is now being made suitable for the altar. Her designs are sometimes minimalist with straight cuts and a touch of tulle and sometimes richly decorated with embroidery and deep necklines. Beauty, innovation and elegance always come first.

So the fashion icon is not afraid of unconventional methods when it comes to realizing her visions. The most famous example: To break the status quo of the pearly wedding dress, her design team dunked each dress into a bathtub full of tea for a year. The result? Another critically acclaimed collection from Wangs.

Bridal Collection – A fairytale magic

Vera Wang Spring Summer – Of course we do not want to withhold her latest bridal fashion collection from you. And what reflects spring and its well-known spring feelings better than flowers? This year, Vera Wang found them to be a great inspiration for her new designs. Handmade flower appliqués in a wide variety of materials adorn the sleeves, petticoats and corsages. Tulle is also increasingly used here to create an almost flower-like illusion. The dresses remind a little bit of Alice in Wonderland. They are romantic and enchanting. Slightly dreamy and yet sophisticated and elegant. Wang’s aim here is not only to captivate the wearers of the dresses and their wedding guests. She is primarily interested in individuality and the expression of different personalities, which is why the dresses look different from every angle, as Wang explains in an interview with the American women’s magazine Harpers Bazaar.

“No matter where you are – front, back, from the side – the dress contrasts in texture, tonality and proportions. It’s not easy, but this collection still feels effortless.” – V. Wang

Convince yourself here in the video of the magic Wang:

The prize of Haute Couture

Starting at 2,000 US dollars, it all starts: Whoever decides to enter into the bond of life in a masterpiece from the house of Wang not only chooses timeless haute couture, but also its proud price: Most of Vera Wang’s dresses cost between 2,000 and 6,000 US dollars. They are sold in Wang’s wedding dress boutique on Madison Avenue as well as in the fashion houses Barney’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. The dresses are also available online. If you are satisfied with a second hand wedding dress, you will also find it on ebay and Amazon.

Extravagant fragrances

From lotus blossom to champagne: since 2002, the name Vera Wang has stood not only for elegant wedding dresses and evening wear, but also for extravagant fragrances. Her first signature fragrance for women was launched in 2002 and immediately enjoyed great popularity. The male counterpart finally followed in 2004, and most of Wang’s creations reflect her love of weddings and have inspired many a famous flâneur. Currently, the fashion icon is responsible for more than 29 fragrances – the top three of Wang’s most popular fragrance creations: Princess, Be Jeweled and Lovestruck are all here for you.

Princess: Homage to the modern princess

The bestseller of Wangs fragrances more than lives up to its name. Princess by Vera Wang was launched in 2006 and has been a bestseller ever since. The oriental-floral fragrance was created by Ilias Ermenidis and Harry Fremont and is dedicated to all princesses of modern times. The royal menage of guava and tiare flower is accompanied by dark chocolate and sweetened with a touch of vanilla. All this is finally packed in an equally royal heart flacon with a crown as lid.

  • Top notes: Lady-Apple, water lily
  • Heart notes: Tiaré blossom, pink guava
  • Base note: chiffon-vanilla, sugar, dark chocolate

Be Jeweled: fragrance composition as elegant as jewels

Similarly popular is Vera Wang’s fragrance Be Jeweled, a fragrance created by flâneur Yann Vasnier in 2013. True to her romantic sweetness, Wang combines the scent of fruity pomegranate and flirtatious passion fruit with warm sandalwood and pink granulated sugar. The fragrance composition is spirited and playful at the same time, giving its wearer a touch of young elegance and joie de vivre. The perfume is entitled because of its impressive flacon, which resembles a diamond, similar to the personality of the wearer herself.

  • Top notes: pomegranate, red currant, champagne
  • Heart notes: passion fruit, honeysuckle, pink peony
  • Base notes: pink granulated sugar, musk, Australian sandalwood

Lovestruck: The sweet smell of young love

Urban and seductive at the same time, the fragrance of Stephen Nelsen and Doreen Doreen Bollhofer has been turning heads in rows since 2011. The fragrance is floral; composed of fruity tropical scents with a hint of musky romance. The aroma is protected in a pink crystal flacon decorated with a romantic bow. Random Fact: The face of the campaign here was our Gossip Girl darling Leightoon Meester.

  • Top note: Tangerine, Pink Guava
  • Heart notes: lotus, tuberose
  • Base note: wood, musk

Romantic engagement rings from the house of Wangs

Sparkling diamonds and 14-carat white gold: Although brides all over the world have been walking down the aisle in Wang’s fairytale creations for years, one of the most important symbols of the world’s most beautiful promise has long remained untouched by Wang’s magic: The engagement ring. Unique, timeless, innovative and iconic at the same time, Wang has now launched two collections and of course we at Cocaine Models do not want to withhold these from you.

“Creating a line of beautiful diamond engagement rings and bridal jewelry is a natural extension of my passion for bridal fashion design” – V. Wang

The Love Collection: Sapphires as a sign of eternal love

In 2012, Vera Wang launched her first jewellery collection, which is still enjoying worldwide popularity today. In the old Vera Wang manner, these are not just any bracelets or necklaces, no – as always, these works of art from Wang make the hearts of all brides and those who want to become brides beat faster. The collection, originally released under the name “Vera Wang LOVE”, contains a variety of engagement and wedding rings for the modern couple. Each piece of jewellery comes with a certificate of authenticity and has an exclusive Wang engraving on the inside. Just like her fairytale dresses and romantic scents, her rings underline the timeless elegance of the wearer.

Her designs are remarkable – most of her works of art are made in 14 carat white gold, and the innovative designer sometimes uses unconventional two-tone gold to meet the needs of risk-taking brides. The ribbons are always set with diamonds. At the centre of attention: a traditionally set diamond in a variety of cuts and shapes in the centre of the ring. Blue sapphire as a sign of fidelity and eternal love is also often used by Wang – an innovative break in style with great significance for the modern couple of modern times.

The Wish collection: playful rose gold

After the worldwide success of her first jewelry collection, it was only a matter of time before Wang decided to launch another ensemble of sparkling diamonds. So in 2019 she launched another collection of bridal jewelry. Compared to “Vera Wang LOVE”, this one is only available at the American jeweller Jared and is entitled “Vera Wang WISH”. Most of the rings are still made of 14 carat white gold, although this time Wang often chose romantic rose gold. Compared to the previous collection, the bands of the rings are more playful and diverse this time. Thus, besides the typical cuts and shapes, more unconventional diamond cuts in the form of hearts and flowers can be found.

Wang’s biggest collaborations – everyday clothes and tuxedos

Over the decades, Wang has established herself not only as an innovative bridal fashion designer, but also as a popular collaborator. Thus, her creative ideas have also found favour in the world of sweets and tuxedos.

For the small purse

Kohl’s x Vera Wang: The American clothing chain Kohl’s and Vera Wang have been working together for over ten years now. Together they offer fashion that makes luxury accessible and at the same time brings elegance and style to everyday life. Starting with a few simple items of clothing for the small purse, the collection now also includes jewelry, shoes, handbags and accessories.

For dessert fanatics

Ladurée x Vera Wang: After clothing, jewellery and home textiles, in 2018 the innovator Vera Wang finally entered the world of vanilla sugar: in collaboration with the French patisserie Ladurée, the first desserts from the house of Wangs were created. Here too, she remained true to her unique aesthetic. Her macaroons and cakes are adorned with glittering sugar flowers and pink cascade bows. As always, breaks in style and conventions are capitalized here. Brides can enjoy both white and black wedding cakes and dessert fanatics will also get their money’s worth with macaroons in the unconventional flavours of coconut cream and mango.

For the fashion-conscious groom

Men’s Warehouse x Vera Wang: In times of feminism and equality, the male counterpart to the wedding dress must not be forgotten, of course. And so, in 2014, grooms could enjoy Wang’s designs for the first time. Her tuxedo line BLACK by Vera Wang has since been available exclusively at the American tuxedo outfitter Men’s Wearhouse and offers a fashionable alternative to the otherwise classically cut tuxedos of the modern age.

Royal frills with a touch of Edgyness

At the beginning of the year Vera Wang presented her current autumn/winter collection at the James B. Duke House in Manhattan. The young models strutted up and down the pompous foyer on large platform heels on a Chartreuse carpet personally laid out by Wang. This time their collection consisted mainly of wicked boudoir pieces, corsets and pleated tulle. Asymmetrical ruched shirts are also to be found more often. Always in Vera Wang’s style, of course: Romantic with a bit of rebellion.

Romantic fragility and high heels

After a two-year break, the icon of bridal fashion is back with daring lingerie elements, transparent bra tops and loose chain mail. Loose and unlaced, tops and dresses were layered to dreamily wrap the models’ timid silhouettes. Romantic. Timid. Almost fragile, the models floated through the darkness on high heels.

Top Videos from Burberry – Between Trench Coat and Innovation

Burberry – The name Burberry immediately brings to mind the famous beige trench coat or scarf in the familiar check pattern. This is both the trademark and unique selling point of the British luxury company, making it one of the most recognizable companies in the world. In addition to English elegance, the label repeatedly presents itself with cool and unusual designs and is a source of excitement for celebrities such as Rihanna, Kate Moss and even the British Royals.

Tense story between highs and lows

The success story of the British company began in 1856 when the merchant Thomas Burberry founded his first textile shop, named after his surname, in Basingstoke, England. Burberry first attracted a lot of attention in 1880 when he developed a gabardine fabric that was at once robust, waterproof and breathable. He patented it and produced men’s capes which he sold on a large scale. Thus, in 1891, Thomas added another shop in the London district of Haymarket, which was the former flagship store. The business grew and grew, in 1920 the first stock exchange listing already took place. Four years later, the check pattern, which is still known worldwide today, was created. Initially, it was only used for the lining of jackets or the well-known trench coat and was worn by the British military during World War I. After Thomas Burberry’s death in 1924, his sons took over the business and expanded further into the USA, where they brought the brand to style icons like Audrey Hepburn. The assortment continued to grow, bags, accessories or fragrances were added. Unfortunately, however, after the sons sold the company in 1955, the business started to falter and experienced a small loss of image. From 2001 to 2018, Christopher Bailey took over the design department of Burberry and brought the company out of its trough – he completely turned the company around and made Burberry fashionable again. Especially today with Riccardo Tisco, Burberry is experiencing a real hype again, the Italian made sure that the British house had maximum sales with his street styles and Burberry has again reached the top of the fashion world.

Fashion shows between live music and technology

The fashion shows of the British fashion company Burberry are characterized primarily by technical features or functions, as well as unique live performances by well-known artists and exclusive guests of the fashion world. For example, Burberry was the first company to try out a so-called “See Now, Buy Now” function, offering customers the chance to order products directly in the live stream of the fashion show. Three of the most interesting fashion shows can be seen here.

Unique Rainbow fashion show in London

With his last show for Burberry, former chief designer Christopher Bailey once again demonstrated his enormous talent and at the same time set a huge signal for more tolerance and acceptance. He dedicated the collection and the show to three of the largest organizations fighting for LGBTQ rights worldwide. The venue was a huge hall in London, where the audience sat around the catwalk like at a football match. Everything was dark, just a few lamps swayed across the middle of the catwalk. The collection was characterized by the typical elegance of Burberry, as well as elements of the rainbow flag. At the end of the fashion show, spotlights formed a construct of rainbow colours, through which the models, first and foremost Cara Delevigne in a colourful fur coat, walked to the song “Don’t Leave Me This Way” by The Communards. The show was a great success and the audience was visibly enthusiastic.

“Fashion meets Technology” – Revolutionary Fashion Show

The Burberry Spring/Summer fashion show in London was a very special and revolutionary fashion show. Burberrry gave fashion fans who didn’t have a ticket for the show the exclusive chance to preview the collection on the company’s Snapchat account the day before. The show itself was classically spectacular, typical for Burberry – the British singer Alison Moyet sang live during the show. The performance was simultaneously recorded for Burberry’s own Apple Music Channel – making the British the first to have their own channel on the platform. The audience, cast with Kate Moss, Cara Delevinge, Sienna Miller or Anna Wintour visibly enjoyed the great show.

“Back to the past” – Tisci show from memories of his past

Burberry’s Autumn/Winter 2020 fashion show took place in a gigantic hall in London, supported by a spectacular and beautiful musical performance by musician Arca and pianist duo Katja and Marielle Labèque. With this show, the new chief designer Riccardo Tisci gives an insight into his memories and shows, especially with the collection, which inspirations he took from his past. Important people, important music or moments played a big and decisive role in his life that made him the person he is today. The top-class fashion audience could definitely feel his vibe and the fashion world was thrilled.

Successful and exploitative campaigns of the traditional house

The British fashion brand Burberry is known for its long and special advertising films. Behind all their campaigns there is always a message, or rather the idea to bring a significant story of the company to the viewer. This is how the company manages to inspire millions of viewers. Three of Burberry’s most interesting campaigns include the famous short film “The Tale of Thomas Burberry”, “From London with Love” and the Christmas campaign “What is Love?

A unique short film about Burberry founder Thomas Burberry

The Tale of Thomas Burberry was a Christmas campaign by the British company and was produced to depict and celebrate the extraordinary life of the founder Thomas Burberry. The clip stars the well-known actors Sienna Miller, Lily James, Domhnall Gleeson and Dominic West, whose roles present the life of the pioneer in an exciting way. The drama of his life in the 20th century with its highs and lows and the development of his company is shown. The campaign was primarily produced to draw attention to the spirit Thomas Burberry, who is also still present in the company.

From London with Love – Campaign with Beckham-Shoot Romeo Beckham

The campaign “From London with Love” is one of the most watched and best known commercials of the luxury brand Burberry so far. Inspiration of this video is the so-called golden age of cinematic musicals. The story of this play is the tragic love of a young couple during a theatrical setback in London. In the leading role of the campaign is, among others, Romeo Beckham, the second youngest son of the British mega stars David and Victoria Beckham, who is not here not for the first time in front of the camera for Burberry, but has already decorated several campaigns of the fashion house. This campaign embodies a special spirit of the company and is absolutely worth seeing.

What is Love? – Campaign to celebrate love

This special Christmas campaign from Burberry aims to spread and showcase the love of the holidays. In the video you can see a variety of people of different ages and looks. From very young children to senior citizens, from classically beautiful people to extraordinary looking people. The campaign celebrates the diversity of people and the boundless love that takes place beyond looks etc. Burberry definitely got a great message out with the campaign and certainly reached a lot of people.

Cara Delevinge, Lily James and Gigi Hadid love Burberry

The British luxury label and traditional house Burberry stands for absolute elegance and innovation at the same time. Celebrities like Cara Delevinge, Lily James or Gigi Hadid are big fans on the one hand, but also advertising faces of the labels. In creative campaigns, they present the spirit of the brand in an optimal way and inspire fans worldwide.

Cara Delevinge loves her hometown London

The campaign for Burberry’s new women’s fragrance “Her” features British supermodel Cara Delevigne in the leading role, who, as a born Londoner, embodies like no other the stylish and energetic spirit of the fragrance, which is dedicated to the city of London. In the campaign, the model can be seen in cool Polaroid shots in her hometown London, singing lines like “Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner, That I love London so, Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner, That I think of her wherever I go The campaign really makes you feel the vibe of the city and the scent!

Superstar Lily James as elegant brand ambassador for perfume

Lily James is a well-known British actress (Cinderella, Mama Mia) and is also the advertising face of the current campaign for the iconic women’s fragrance “My Burberry”. The 31-year-old, dressed in Burberry, is shown lying on a couch in various poses against a typical backdrop of houses in the West of London. This is, by the way, the first campaign to take place under the artistic direction of the new chief designer Riccardo Tisci. The elegance and cool chic that the fragrance represents are perfectly staged and presented in this campaign video.

Gigi Hadid for the new interpretation of the Burberry monogram

New Chief Designer Riccardo Tisco is responsible for a whole new interpretation of the Burberry monogram. It includes the two initials T and B, for Thomas Burberry and is already featured on several pieces of the new collections. To present this reinterpretation, Burberry grabbed the famous supermodel Gigi Hadid for her campaign, in which she presents both the women’s and men’s collections in a cool way in different cuts. The collection has many fans, but also opponents who would rather see Burberry’s traditional design. However, the new one is innovative and Tisci brings a new, younger clientele to the company.

Vivienne Westwood or London in LA – cool collaborations

Burberry is a brand that, compared to other high-fashion brands, does not rely so much on collaborations with other brands. Nevertheless, the label presented a very successful brand collaboration last year with the punk legend Vivienne Westwood. On the other hand, Burberry is very innovative and always creative when it comes to presenting its fashion – for example at an event in Los Angeles, where it brought the brand’s London vibe to the USA.

London in Los Angeles, California – James Cordon and the Beckhams are thrilled

This video does not show a typical brand collaboration, but a very special project of the British fashion company Burberry, which presented an exclusive capsule collection in the Californian dream city Los Angeles. Place of the event was the famous Griffith Observatory, high above the hills of LA. Surprise appearances by the famous English soldiers, dressed in red gear and huge black headgear, as well as a runway debut by “The Late Late Show” presenter James Cordon made this event extraordinary. There was also a small English garden in the middle of the Hollywood Hills, where British singers such as Clare Maguire, George Ezra or Tom Odell performed. Also the guests were top-class – many of the British guests like Anna Wintour, Cara Delevinge, Elton John, Rose Byrne or the Beckhams enjoyed this evening very much and could share a little bit of home style in the middle of the Californian metropolis.

Traditional house and punk icon – Unique collection

Two British fashion houses that could not be more different – Burberry, the elegant and luxurious fashion house with a long tradition and Vivienne Westwood, the eccentric fashion designer who is considered the queen of punk. The collection is inspired by Westwood’s iconic designs, with the classic double-breasted coat from the Fall/Winter 1992 collection or the mini kilt from the Anglomania 1993 collection. The aim of the collaboration is to celebrate the British style, with its punk approaches, but also the famous check pattern by Burberry. Riccardo Tisci has always been a big fan of fashion icon Vivienne Westwood and with his start at Burberry he saw the perfect opportunity to connect and work with her.

Christopher Bailey & Riccardo Tisci: Interesting Interviews

The two designers Christopher Bailey and Riccardo Tisci are both revolutionaries at Burberry. Bailey, who brought the company out of a crisis and Tisci, who is currently taking Burberry to a whole new level with his street styles. In two videos the two can be seen in short but exciting interviews.

Design legend Christopher Bailey about the famous trench coat

As iconic as Burberry’s famous trench coat is the designer Christopher Bailey, who brought the brand out of a low in the early 2000s and made it what it is today. For over 15 years he revolutionised the style of the house in his own way and had a huge success in the process. One thing that always remained the same, however, is the legendary trench coat, which has been in the range since the company started in 1856 and probably always will be. With Mr. Porter’s fashion magazine, the Briton spoke about the trench coat and why it is an absolute must-have in every wardrobe.

Elevator interview at Burberry Head Office – Riccardo Tisci and Models

Inspired by the well-known elevator pitch method, Burberry filmed an interview format for its YouTube channel in which all employees who enter the elevator are interviewed about Burberry and the show. Among others, chief designer Riccardo Tisci steps into the elevator and is interviewed about the show. However, he remains mysterious and does not reveal too much. Models of the show are also in the elevator and you might get first ideas how the show could look like. With this format Burberry definitely manages to build up tension before the fashion show and with this unique idea also provides entertainment.

Top Videos from Gucci – Between revolutionary eccentricity and high fashion

Whether in rap songs or celebrities, Gucci is present and everyone knows the name. The typical designs and above all the well-known GG logo quickly come to mind. Whether it’s sneakers, belts, sunglasses or perfume, Gucci has long been mainstream. Under the direction of chief designer Alessandro Michele, Gucci today reaches a whole new and above all young target group and stars such as Harry Styles or Jared Leto are idols on the one hand, but also lovers and advertising face of the brand. In addition, the brand can be seen in influencers on Instagram or Youtube and is now one of the favorite brands of the social media generation.

History and legacy of the fashion group

The Italian Guccio Gucci opened his company in 1921 in Florence, Italy. However, by that time there were already some problems after leather imports failed to materialize during the Second World War. But Gucci made the best of it and created the Bamboo It Bag, which is still successful today. In the 1950s, Gucci’s son Aldo took over the business after Gucci’s death and helped the brand gain international recognition with its first store in the USA and stars like Grace Kelly as a customer. Aldo Gucci brought his illegitimate daughter Patricia, who was a huge scandal in Italian society at the time, into the company’s board of directors at the age of just 20. She was the beautiful companion at her father’s side on business trips and, after modeling in a bathing suit for a company advertising campaign, was named the “Gucci Girl”. Then in the 1980s Aldo Gucci was arrested for tax evasion at the age of 81 – he died at 90 and disinherited all his sons before that. In addition, since the 1980s, the company has been in decline after one of his sons, Maurizio Gucci, gradually sold the company to a US-Arab company. In 1995 his ex-wife had him killed and was sentenced to 26 years in prison.

In 2004, Gucci became a wholly owned subsidiary of the French luxury group Kering, and since then has experienced a real boom and complete transformation with designers such as Tom Ford, Frida Giannini and now Alessandro Michele, so that today the company is considered the strongest in the group and one of the most important fashion companies in the world.

Fascination and uniqueness at the fashion shows

The fashion shows of the Italian luxury brand Gucci are anything but boring – they are elaborate and unique. Especially since the Italian Alessandro Michele became chief designer of the company, Gucci fascinates anew with every fashion show and collection. Whether shocking clinic atmosphere, mysterious outdoor location with fire elements or transparent “carousel”, Michele’s ingenuity and crazy ideas never seem to run out.

“Mental health is not fashion” – controversial fashion show

No fashion show in recent years has been as controversial and attracted as much attention as the Spring Summer 2020 show. Not only the show itself, under the artistic direction of the extroverted designer Alessandro Michele, but especially the eye-catching collection was the talk of the fashion world. At the beginning of the show, the models drive past the audience motionlessly, wearing white clothes from head to toe, reminiscent of forced clothing from mental institutions. One of the models made a silent protest by writing “Mental health is not fashion” on her hands and holding them up on the catwalk – of course this caused quite a stir. Also otherwise the show was a special eye-catcher by very special outfits…

Secret fashion show in a Roman cemetery

The Gucci Cruise Show 2019 delighted with a mystical atmosphere and spooky location, as well as a collection of gothic and disco elements. In the middle of the Roman cemetery of Arles, the fashion house presented its collection – artificial fog, thousands of candles and a choir singing medieval music made this show a real experience. The catwalk was set on fire and the models floated past the audience in their extraordinary creations. The audience was fascinated and enthusiastic and the fashion world also reported in high tones about the Gucci fashion show.

Intimate insight into the backstage of a fashion show

After the fashion house’s particularly eye-catching show for the Spring Summer 2020 collection, the expectations of Alessandro Michele were naturally particularly high for the next show. The guests gathered in a huge location, a transparent carousel stood in the middle and with the beginning of the show the view inside was exposed. You could see choreographers, stylists, dressers and models between bathrobe and finished runway look. The spectators were part of the complete backstage procedure before the fashion show, which is always the most nerve-racking part of the fashion shows for the designer. Michele’s intention was to let the audience participate live, as is usual in times of social media. By the way, the invitations for the show were sent out in a special way – Michele sent them via WhatsApp to the guests, because they are personally part of an otherwise invisible and rather intimate moment.

The best Gucci campaigns – Lana del Rey, Gucci Mane & Jared Leto

If there were an award for the coolest campaigns, Gucci would certainly be way ahead. In collaboration with Christopher Simmonds, the Italian luxury house produces real short films that make you want to watch Gucci. Whether it’s the Gucci Cruise 2020 campaign with Gucci Mane, the Gucci Guilty campaign with Lany Del Rey and Jared Leto, or the Gucci Psychodelic campaign, all of these feel the attitude and the joy of life that the company wants to spread with its fashion.

Excessive house party with celebrities like Sienna Miller or Gucci Mane

This Gucci campaign for the Cruise 2020 collection is truly legendary and will make you want to shop at Gucci. The video features celebrities such as Sienna Miller, Iggy Pop, Benedetta Barzini and Gucci Mane at an uninhibited house party at a Los Angeles mansion. All guests are debauched and eccentric personalities and embody a hedonistic, carefree party life. All the social classes, whether they be the chic, rich businessmen or famous rappers, are dressed in Gucci gear and can be seen banging around every corner of the house. The campaign embodies an infectious joie de vivre that Gucci wants to communicate to its customers.

60s glamour with Lana Del Rey and Jared Leto

In the campaign for the Gucci Guilty fragrance, singer Lana Del Rey and musician Jared Leto are seen as an American “showcase couple” in iconic Hollywood locations. The whole thing is set in a retro perspective, probably inspired by the 60s and the American Dream. Both dressed completely in Gucci give a really beautiful couple and remind the viewer of old Hollywood glamour. In the background there is fitting retro music, which makes this campaign as a whole a really successful and worth watching promotional video.

Shrill and colourful psychedelic campaign at an Italian tradition house

The psychedelic campaign for a capsule collection of the Italian luxury brand takes the viewer into a colourful nightclub of the 70s with a hilarious and trance-like atmosphere. Just as striking as the colorful light reflections and disco balls in the video is, above all, the collection presented, which shows a colorful reinterpretation of the well-known Gucci logo. This campaign also reflects the fashion house’s cool attitude towards life in an exciting way and appeals to a mainly young target group.

Authenticity and glamour through Harry Style and Lana Del Rey

Gucci is a brand whose campaigns and fashions are designed to evoke a sense of life and emotion in people. To get these messages across, the Italian fashion house naturally chooses special people to be part of the campaigns. The label places particular emphasis on authenticity, which they have succeeded in doing especially with prominent examples such as Harry Styles and Lana Del Rey.

Teenie favourite Harry Styles in current campaign

The ex-One Direction star and now successful musician himself is a Gucci lover and can be seen in countless campaigns, as well as in the robes of the luxury house – for example, at the last Met Gala in New York, the Briton fascinated in a very androgynous piece by Gucci. In the following campaign, 26-year-olds are seen as a down-to-earth young man strolling through an English suburb with a chicken in his hand, visiting a fish-and-chips shop. As inconspicuous as this campaign is, with Harry Style as a model, it was a great success and attracted many young fans to Gucci.

Pigs collection with Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson

Last year, Gucci presented a very special collection, with all the clothes, bags and accessories featuring cute piggy emblems. Funnily enough, these are really trendy and are becoming increasingly popular as pets. The collection was a real success and caused a real buying frenzy, especially with the beauty mogul and youtuber Jeffree Star. The multimillionaire bought the entire collection worth 15,000 dollars and surprised his good YouTube friend Shane Dawson, whose trademark is a pig. Unfortunately, Gucci did not produce a campaign film for this collection, but the VLOG by Jeffree Star gives a very interesting and entertaining insight into the pieces in the collection.

Lana Del Rey for 60s campaign for Gucci Guilty

The musician and songwriter Lana Del Rey stands for natural beauty and embodies with her music and her unique look a special and often sentimental retro time. In the campaign for the perfume Guilty, the American actress plays together with singer Jared Leto an American glamour couple in Hollywood in the 1960s. With her unique style and look, the singer is the perfect cast for the role and created a great campaign with Gucci. Gucci gives a small insight “BTS” of the campaign in the following video.

Exceptional, successful collaborations

The ingenuity and creative ideas of chief designer Alessandro Michele are great and so the Italian is known above all for his eccentric designs and unusual collaborations. The success and hype of the collections speaks for itself every time and so the Gucci Ghost, the Yankees, and this year’s Disney collections have been part of the last years.

Disney’s Mickey Mouse on Italian luxury fashion

On the occasion of Chinese New Year and this year’s Year of the Mouse, the luxury company collaborated with none other than Disney and released a limited edition in mouse design. The focus is on the Disney cult figure Mickey Mouse, which can be seen on numerous pieces such as clothes, bags or even bath slippers. To match the collection, the luxury company produced a promotional video at Disneyland, which is specifically aimed at the Chinese New Year. The collection was a great success and sold out in large parts within a short time. In addition to the meaning behind the mouse design, these naturally also aroused a real childhood feeling in many customers.

Ex snowboarder Trevor Andrew is the Gucci Ghost

The collaboration with the famous Gucci Ghost was born in 2016 and caused a huge hype especially on the Instagram platform. Behind the Gucci Ghost design is former pro snowboarder Trevor Andrew, who some years ago, out of desperation over a matching Halloween costume, threw on an old Gucci sheet, cut out the eye area and has since been affectionately known as the Gucci Ghost by his friends. With his new nickname, the American started as a graffiti artist in New York, where he quickly built a large fan base with his artwork on Instagram. Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s chief designer, was also a fan and got to know the “Gucci Ghost” through mutual friends. This led to the joint idea of the special collection, which was launched in 2016. In the following video you can watch the exciting collection in the New York showroom with a special 360 degree function.

Collaboration of baseball caps and Italian luxury fashion

The Major League Baseball (MLB) is the biggest baseball league in the world and the famous Yankee Caps with NY logo are almost the trademark. The caps have always been in fashion and almost everyone has had one. Even the creative mind behind Gucci Alessandro Michele likes to wear his NY cap in combination with Gucci. So he came up with the idea to work with the American Baseball League and design a complete collection in Yankees design. The result is caps, clothing or accessories and shoes, which is a clever and at the same time successful move of the Italian true, because the collection experienced a big hype and an even bigger demand.

Alessandro Michele’s attitude to work and vision

Hip-hop legend Dapper Dan in his Gucci studio

Dapper Dan is a true icon – he is a hip-hop cult designer and is best known for introducing high fashion to the hip-hop world. The 75-year-old is also an avowed Gucci lover. So it was clear to Alessandro Michele that he had to make a collection with the New Yorker. The result is a collection of absolute connoisseur pieces in a New York retro look, which often have a history and are already cult.

Daniel Wellington – Watches combined from timeless elegance and casual NATO bracelets

Daniel Wellington – A man who, with the help of Instagram, has managed to maximize his advertising strategy to build an empire within 5 years Through a chance encounter with another backpacker, he was inspired to bring to market the revolutionary watch design that brought him this enormous wealth. His idea of attaching classic watch cases to NATO bracelets became a box office hit!

Establishment of the brand – chance acquaintance in Australia

The story behind the brand “Daniel Wellington” is just as young as it is characterized by chance encounters. The founder Filip Tysander came from a small province called Jarfälla in the capital of Sweden. After graduating from school he decided to leave Stockholm and make a stay in the wilderness of Australia. There he met the young Englishman Daniel Wellington, whose appearance and manner simply impressed him. Daniel Wellington had an expensive Rolex Submariner watch on a Nato bracelet, which looked simple yet good. That was the point for Tysander to design such a watch collection.

Klockkungen Daniel Wellington plockar ut rekordbelopp – trots en lägre omsättning ⌚️ Klockbolaget Daniel Wellington minskade omsättningen i fjol. Men samtidigt plockade grundaren Filip Tysander, 34, ut 220 miljoner kronor från bolaget – och hade en sammanlagd inkomst av kapital på 403 miljoner. ⌚️ Men själva omsättningen tappade mot 2017. Daniel Wellington omsatte drygt två miljarder kronor under 2018. Ett tapp mot 2017 då bolaget omsatte 2,4 miljarder. ⌚️ Men pengar verkar finnas. I fjol hade Tysander en rejäl inkomstökning. Då höjdes hans lön från 660 000 kronor till 6,2 miljoner jämfört med 2017. ⌚️ Filip Tysander startade Daniel Wellington 2011 med produktion av tunna klockor med tygarmband – så kallade Nato-band. 💰 Läs artikeln genom att följa länken i vår bio!

From ordinary student to millionaire in 5 years

He studied business at Uppsala University and invested 15,000 US dollars in his own brand, whose advertising and marketing strategies he designed himself, mainly via social media, and the knowledge he gained from working in a watch factory. In 2011, almost 5 years after meeting Daniel Wellington, he sold the first watch with his name. In less than 3 years he had sold more than one million watches, in the next two years his profit was more than 100 million dollars and today he belongs to Sweden’s high society with an estimated net value of 1.2 billion.

He has the sole right to the company or 100% share, so his way to the billion was relatively quick. Apart from his luxurious property, which is the most expensive in Stockholm with a value of 13 million US dollars, he leads a rather down-to-earth life and keeps away from the media.

Watches – ladies, gentlemen and NATO bands

Daniel Wellington has gained an incredible reputation in recent years. What once started as a small start-up company is now worth millions. With his simple idea Filip Tysander managed to become an equal competitor to many brand watches. The secret behind it? Exchangeable bracelets made of stainless steel, mesh, nylon and leather. So he delights the classic fans with their metal look, as well as the ladies and gentlemen who like the vintage look with wristbands made of fabric. The quality of the watches is high, with their Japanese quartz movement and rainproof features, they prevent problems from occurring quickly. Between 6 and 8mm thick, the ivory-white cases are thick, which makes them shine unmistakably on the wrist.

Ladies – classic-elegant

The perfect watch for the lady to complete any outfit. A casual look or classic-elegant, the watch gives the “cherry on top” effect. The dials are available in ivory white or black, always framed by rose gold or silver shimmering cases. Only the bracelets are there in more colourful colours. The NATO bracelets are available in blue, green, bordeaux and pink, but mainly Daniel Wellington offers only the basic colors black, white, rose-gold and silver. The country look is provided by the leather strap watches from Italy with crocodile embossing. As you can see, there is something for every occasion and every type of woman!

Men – minimalist look

The ladies’ and men’s watches hardly differ. There are the same models, colours and materials, only the longer strap length distinguishes them from the ladies’ watches. The men’s watches also have a minimalist look. You can get the cheapest watch for 99 Euros, the Petite Cornwall with a classic black NATO bracelet and the prices do not exceed 200 Euros. The currently most expensive model is the Classic Reading, which carries its proud price due to its crocodile-embossed leather strap. Followed by the bestseller, the Iconic Link for 189 Euro, which is a modern interpretation of a classic design made of refined and polished stainless steel.

He became famous for his polo shirt collection and since then the brand has made a big splash in every area. Meanwhile the label sells clothes for men, women, children and babies. There are also home articles, accessories and perfumes.

Ralph Laurens career – American Dream “Rags to Riches”

Ralph Lifshitz was the son of Belarusian immigrants from Pinsk. His father was a simple painter who emigrated with his family to the USA. Despite his roots, Ralph grew up influenced by American culture. His parents only spoke Russian, Polish or Yiddish if they wanted to hide something from the children.

At the age of 12 he sold his first ties at his school and invested the money in expensive suits. At the age of 16, he and his brothers changed their surnames, not to hide their Jewish origins, but because of teasing, as the name resembles the two English words “life” and “shit”. Lauren never studied anything in the field of fashion, he was exmatriculated from economics because of his poor grades. Thereupon he met his wife, who was a receptionist at the eye doctor. They married and had three children in the following years. >His path to great success – from salesman to billionaire

His way to great success – From being a salesman to billionaire

Before that he had served in the army for two years and then worked as a salesman for the fashion house Brook Brothers. The earnings there enabled him to take out a loan for his first tie collection under the Polo label. The sale brought him enough money to buy the rights for the brand. This led him to independence and to his great success. He created entire collections and won the Coty Awards in 1970. Two years later he designed the complete costumes for the movie “Great Gatsby”. In the same year he also created a collection of polo shirts and the famous trademark of the riding polo player. This is still his most successful collection today.

Changing diagnosis – Pink Pony Campagne

In April 1987 he was diagnosed with a brain tumour, which was cured after a successful operation. This was the incentive for him to actively participate in the field of cancer research. He saved thousands of lives through his diagnostic centre for treatment and prevention of breast cancer. His campaign called Pink Pony opened a centre to make it financially possible for everyone to get treatment without falling into huge debts. Meanwhile, the Pink Pony Campaign can be found all over the world.

Giorgio Armani – Watches, Perfume & Sportswear EA7

Giorgio Armani – A world-famous name behind which stands a man who has revolutionized the fashion world. He has taken elegance and classicism to a new level. Milan, the city of fashion, has become what it is today through his works. Starting with shop window decoration, soon half of Hollywood and numerous actors were dressed in their film sets. In the same way Armani made it into the sports sector and dressed the Italian team for the Olympic Games. In every imaginable field the brand has tried out and set high records. Whether make-up, fragrances, watches or (sports) fashion. Designs by Armani are true classics! In this article you will find out everything from the creation to the different sales areas.

History and facts about Giorgio Armani

Giorgio Armani was born in 1934 in Piacenza, Italy. He began to study medicine, but broke off his studies in the 3rd year of his apprenticeship because he realized that this was not his vocation. Together with his then life partner Sergio Galeotti he developed his career in the fashion industry. First as a window dresser, then as a designer in the Nino Cerrutti fashion house. While Armani designe, Galeotti sold his unique pieces to several department stores, which led to the start of his own business in 1975.

His career began at the age of 40 and after only 5 years he had his first breakthrough. At the beginning of the 1980s he equipped various Hollywood celebrities. In 1982 he was the first fashion designer after Christian Dior to be featured on the cover of Time Magazine and he launched his first perfume.

In addition to elegant clothing, Armani has also created sportswear, flight attendant uniforms for Alitalia, costumes and even food for special occasions. He set the trend in the 70s with bomber jackets, which still have cult status today. He has also ensured that Milan maintains its current status as a fashion city and has created revolting fashion shows with a mini-miI to avoid anorexic trends in the fashion industry.

Despite all his success, Giorgio Armani is a perfectionist who is very reflective and self-critical of his career and his shows. He calls himself a frustrating actor, producer and director of life, because by dressing several actors he discovered his love for film and would have loved to try himself out.

In the following video you can see his attitude towards life in relation to one of the numerous shows in Paris.

  • 1934 born in Piacenza, Italy
  • began to study medicine
  • dropout in the 3rd year of study
  • Then he was a window dresser, later a designer
  • 1975 founded “Armani” with the help of life partner Sergio Galeotti
  • Early 80s: Breakthrough
  • Elegant clothing, sportswear (EA7), flight attendant uniforms and even food he appropriated
  • Revolution: minimum BMI
  • Enhanced reputation of Milan through Armani

Perfume – Si, Aqua di Gio & She

Giorgio Armani’s perfumes are based on a very simple concept: in close collaboration with the most talented noses in the world, fragrances full of elegance and refinement are composed from the most precious ingredients. Some of them are inspired by the elements of nature, or they embody in perfection the perennial theme of seduction such as ‘Homage to the femininity of today’s woman’. The art of Giorgio Armani’s haute parfumerie is particularly evident in the luxurious, unique Armani Privé fragrance collections. They are particularly close to his heart because they best express his couturier’s art.

Si – classic perfumes

The naming of the perfume was very well thought out. Si means “yes” in Italian and it is exactly this open-minded, positive attitude that Armani wants to convey. A very feminine fragrance combination with a floral note of amber and patchouli. This perfume is by no means a fragrance for older ladies, but timeless and intended for the unforgettable appearance in everyday life. A fragrance that stays in your head. You can recognize Armani’s craftsmanship by the stylish and glamorous finish of the bottle, as well as the fragrance itself. Italian flair for a good price.

Here you can find the fragrances sorted by year of release:

  • Si Eau de Parfum (2013)
  • Si Intense (2014)
  • Si Eau de Toilette (2015)
  • Si Intense Limited Edition Night Light (2106)
  • Si Rose Signature (2016)
  • Si Le Parfum (2016)
  • Si Passione (2018)
  • Si Passione Limited Edition (2018)
  • Si Fiori (2019)

“Although Giorgio Armani’s women’s fragrance Si Fiori evolves into a sweet and feminine scent, the heart note is beautifully lightened. But the olfactory combination of patchouli, rose and oakmoss keeps the sweetness in check”.

Aqua di Gio

The perfume “Aqua di Gio” or the version for women “Aqua di Gioia” has been on the market for 25 years. 65% of those interviewed consider the smell to be good, while 30% consider it neutral. It is a fragrance that goes with everything. Whether it’s a rendezvous, an upscale opera visit or open-air concerts. The fragrance marketed by L’Oréal has a naturally delicate scent for the ladies. It should reflect untouched nature and landscapes. The refinement of mint and the interplay of jasmine blossom and cedar wood gives it that irresistible note.

The essence for men should again emphasize freedom of the elements water and wind. To achieve this, citrus fragrances are used in combination with delicate blossoms and spicy aromas such as oakmoss, amber, rosemary or musk. This gives the perfume a maritime masculine character, but it doesn’t sting too much in the nose. Nevertheless, the main components are fruity essences such as mandarin orange and bergamot.

EA7: The elegant sports brand

What is behind EA7? This sports brand has been on the market since 2004. In the beginning it was just an exclusive sports collection, but today it is a big hit! By mixing elegance and sportiness, Armani created a brand suitable for everyday use that stands out for its charm. 

How did it get that name? Giorgio Armani is an incredible fan of football. He really loves the club AC Milan and his close friend and favourite player Andrij Shevchenko wears the number 7, which gave him the inspiration for the name. Marketing has also been strategically invested in the sports world. For the Olympics and Paralymic Games, the complete wardrobe for the Italian team was designed.

Make-Up & Beauty – The Luminous Silk Foundation,

Armani has established itself in every area of fashion. For years they have also been a top brand in make-up and beauty. With their liquid foundation, the Luminous Silk Foundation, they won the InStyle’s Best Beauty Awards for 9 years in a row. In addition to the 40 shades for all skin types, the oil-free foundation provides a fresh and pleasant hold for the whole day. A light foundation with medium coverage for a natural look.

  • Light and comfortable with perfect grip
  • Fresh and perfect shine in the twinkling of an eye
  • 40 shades for all skin types and skin tones

“The Luminous Silk Foundation, the cult foundation from Armani Beauty, gives the skin perfect shine and a radiant complexion for more natural beauty.”

With its micro-fil technology, the foundation promises to combine highly effective pigments with a weightless texture, which is why it is celebrated by many celebrities and renowned make-up artists. Thanks to its low density, the complexion appears seamless and the skin radiant. The texture of the soft charmeuse silk inspired manufacturers to enhance and unify the Luminous Silk Foundation, so that the flawless finish with transparent to medium coverage is long-lasting.

Watches – Smartwatch, Armani Exchange & Ceramica Watch

Since 2004 Armani offers wristwatches for ladies and men. With precise accuracy and robust material the watches are worked on.  The cheapest product for “Armani watches” currently costs about 140 Euros, while the average price is about 235 Euros. Mostly the watches look very classic and elegant, which is why bright colours are not used.

Christin Dior – a brand that stands for French elegance, luxury and design like no other.

In 1946 the then 41-year-old Christian Dior opened his fashion house of the same name in Paris. He learned his unique style from Lucien Lelong and revolutionized the fashion world of the time in just 10 years with his NEW LOOK. The Frenchman quickly enjoyed great success and a few years later launched Miss Dior, the women’s perfume that is still famous today. From the 1950s onwards, Dior began to print his name on his exclusive fashion, accessories and bags and quickly became the outfitter of the Hollywood society. Stores on New York’s 5th Avenue and Paris’ Avenue Montaigne followed and at the same time, with the launch of the first beauty line, the then young Ives Saint Lauren became Christian Dior’s assistant. After Dior’s death, Saint Lauren took over the creative direction of the house, but had to resign after a short time when he was drafted into the military. Over the years, the traditional house still experiences many highs, such as the introduction of new lines, e.g. men’s fashion, but also lows, such as some takeovers and bankruptcies. From 1988 onwards, LVMH slowly took over the company and designers such as Hedi Slimane or John Galliano revolutionized the fashion Dior’s once again. Today, under the creative direction of Maria Grazia Chiuri and Kim Jones and fully owned by LVMH, the company is one of the largest fashion groups in the world. The fashion world and stars love the French label and the designs of the brand are iconic.

Top Videos of Louis Vuitton – Craftsmanship, Innovation and Luxury

Louis Vuitton – A name that is not only known to fashion fans, it has stood for French luxury and craftsmanship for more than 160 years. Starting out as a suitcase manufacturer, the company has developed into one of the largest fashion groups in the world, fulfilling the dreams of many enthusiasts with its characteristic designs. Louis Vuitton expanded its range of products to include countless fashion and lifestyle products such as clothing, bags, shoes and accessories.

Louis Vuitton – History and development of the High-Fashion Empire

The unique story begins in 1837, after the young Louis Vuitton set off for Paris to begin his apprenticeship as a suitcase maker with “Monsieur Maréchal”. After a few years of experience, he opened his own workshop in 1854, thus laying the foundations for a later empire. Vuitton soon had great success and opened another workshop – the French jet set loved suitcases. In order to offer them better protection, over the years he and his son developed the Tumbler lock, which is still used today. He created the legendary pattern “Damier” by Louis Vuitton based on the design of his kitchen tiles – this too still adorns numerous bags and suitcases today. After Tot Vuitton’s death, his son took over the company and designed the “Noé” and other well-known bags.  Until the 1980s, Louis Vuitton experienced some ups and downs, with frequent takeovers or bad business figures. In 1987 the French spirits manufacturer Moët Hennesy bought the company and with the introduction of new bags, as well as the first fashion line including shoes, and accessories such as scarves, shawls or belts, made it into today’s global corporation LVMH.

Especially with the creative direction of Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton experienced a real boom at the beginning of the 2000s – he created the It-Bags, which became famous through stars like Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian. The French company became one of the leading luxury goods groups in the world. When buying a product, customers today not only buy the highest quality craftsmanship and design, but also a piece of history. Stars and celebrities, such as the Kardashians or Emma Stone and supermodels like Miranda Kerr or Alessandra Ambrosio are regularly seen with Louis Vuitton designs.

Fashion shows between Japan, Paris and Alice in Wonderland

At Louis Vuitton, creativity and uniqueness play one of the main roles …whether in designs, collaborations or fashion shows. Especially the latter often not only enchants the audience of the shows, but also many fans of the brand, who watch the fashion shows on YouTube. Here you can see the three most popular and extraordinary shows of the luxury brand.

Exotic scenery and insane show at French luxury brand

This unique show by the French fashion house for their Cruise 2018 collection took place in the middle of the exotic and breathtaking Miho Museum in Kyoto, Japan. In front of a breathtaking backdrop the models presented the collection and caused a mega sensation with the audience. Together with the music the show created a truly magical feeling and let the audience from home take part in this special fashion show.

Kim Kardashian at the rainbow show by Virgil Abloh

The first show of the new Men’s chief designer Virgil Abloh in Paris caused quite a stir and not only thrilled the audience, but also the fashion world and fans on YouTube. Louis Vuitton built a catwalk in rainbow colours in an exclusive setting in the middle of a castle park in Paris. In addition, specially arranged people in the audience, dressed to match the colours of the rainbow in their section, made the catwalk shine. In the audience sat celebrities like Kim Kardashian, her husband Kayne West or Kylie Jenner with ex-boyfriend Tyga. The collection itself, as well as the extravagant show made this one of the most exciting fashion shows in the history of the French luxury label.

Alice in Wonderland at Virgil Abloh’s Fall/Winter 2020

The Autumn/Winter 2020 fashion show under Virgil Abloh’s creative direction was once again a complete success and a mega eye-catcher. This time the audience found itself in a kind of “Alice in Wonderland” location with huge scissors, keys or trees in the middle of a turquoise cloudscape. The collection was just as creative, with suits in the same sky look or futuristic bag designs. Here too Virgil Abloh proved his enormous talent and his incredible creativity, which Louis Vuitton lifted into a whole new fashion dimension in the last 2 years.

Campaigns – Feeling of freedom and weightlessness at LV

Campaigns should trigger an emotion in potential customers. Especially at Louis Vuitton you can often feel the feeling of elegance, freedom and luxury. With especially beautiful and captivating campaign videos, the French fashion house manages to impress you again and again, as with the following three campaigns.

Lightness at Emma Stone in dreamlike settings

The campaign for Les Parfums in cooperation is considered one of the most successful and most viewed campaigns of the French luxury group. On YouTube alone, the video has reached more than 15 million views to date. The American actress, who won an Oscar for her film LaLa-Land, can be seen cruising here at various moments, whether on the beach, on a stage or in a convertible by the sea, and embodies lightness and freedom with the scent of Louis Vuitton – Beyonce’s Song XO runs in the background. Definitely one of the most beautiful and successful campaigns ever.

Freedom by travelling with LV-Bags

For this campaign, Louis Vuitton created a kind of short film, reflecting in a special way the spirit and origin of the company, namely travel. The model embodies a feeling of freedom and elegance in the middle of the desert, driving an old convertible. Dressed with Louis Vuitton, the bags with their classic LV patterns are the perfect travel companion.

Colored LV case – make you fly

An interesting campaign was created for the new suitcase collection of the French traditional house, in which the models float through the air together with the suitcases. The suitcases are colourful and mega light and embody the new generation of the brand – above all colourful! One of the coolest and most creative campaigns Louis Vuitton has ever produced.

Mega hype through collaborations with art and streetwear

Louis Vuitton is probably the brand that created and still creates the greatest demand in its collaborations with various brands or artists. Some of these collaborations are still considered “iconic” by fans and have often become real capital investments. The three videos below show the prime examples of the brand.

Contemporary artists created unique collection for LV

The French luxury company quickly recognized the hype behind collaborations with other designers or artists. For their Artycapucines Collection, however, Louis Vuitton worked with not one but six contemporary artists and designed a collection of bags that is still unique today. The artists include Sam Falls, Urs Fischer, Nicholas Hlobo, Alex Israel, Tschabalala Self, and Jonas Wood. All of these artists have their own unique way of interpreting art and are successful worldwide. Their designs for Louis Vuitton reflected this in an individual way and generated enormous demand from customers.

Jefree Stars Louis Vuitton X Supreme Collection

No brand collaboration in the world has caused as much hype as the one between the French luxury label Louis Vuitton and the American skater label Supreme. As contrary as the two brands are, they harmonized perfectly in their collaboration and triggered record sums in reseller platforms. This can be seen, for example, in a video by the American beauty influencer Jeffree Star. As one of the most successful youtuber and make-up entrepreneurs in his industry, the American simply treated himself to the complete collection and presented it in a haul on YouTube. Definitely a good investment, because a hoodie, like Jeffree Star’s friend wears it, often made 10.000 Euro and more at reselling platforms like StockX.

“Art meets Fashion” – iconic collection by Jeff Koons

Jeff Koons is considered one of the most successful and exciting artists of modern art. His sculptures and works of art fetch millions of dollars at major auction houses. In cooperation with Louis Vuitton, the American created a collection consisting of handbags and accessories. With his extraordinary designs, Koons met 100% the taste of Louis Vuitton fans worldwide. His Pieces are a real classic, almost iconic, and still show a steadily growing value today.

Influencer as new “supermodels” and brand ambassadors of high fashion

In times of social media, influencers have enormous power and influence, especially on young people. When stars like Kylie Jenner with over 100 million Instagram Followers link a brand in their posts, this usually means huge sales increases for a company. Consequently, companies are interested in working with influencers and using their influence for PR purposes. Louis Vuitton has also been following this trend for several years and has worked with actors such as Cody Fern and the Youtubers Emma Chamberlain and the Dolan Twins.

“No Gender Rules” with the actor Cody Fern

The actor Cody Fern, not only known from the series American Horror Story and American Crime Story, but also for his fight and commitment to fight against gender roles or “Gender Rules”. The Australian likes to wear make-up and presents himself in public or on magazine covers. Even when it comes to clothing, there is no such thing as “men’s or women’s clothing” – he wears what he likes and what he feels like wearing. Louis Vuitton also obviously shares his strong and tolerant opinion and regularly invites the 31-year-old to fashion shows. In addition, they recently produced a video with Cody Fern in which the actor is fitting for the next show and wonderfully demonstrates how men can also wear “women’s clothing” optimally.

Influencerin Emma Chamberlain as a guest of Louis Vuitton

Emma Chamberlain is one of the biggest and most successful youtube and influencer and inspires millions of viewers with her videos. No wonder that brands like Louis Vuitton are also courting her and want to work with her. Among other things, the American is a welcome guest at the brand’s fashion shows and is naturally equipped with luxury fashion from top to bottom. Of course, the 18-year-old was again present at this year’s Cruise Show and shot a kind of Vlog together with Louis Vuitton, who accompanied her from the preparation to the actual fashion show. Not only entertainment, but in any case a good advertisement for the luxury company.

Comedy-Youtuber Dolan Twins at first Louis Vuitton Show

The Dolan Twins, consisting of the American twins Ethan Grant and Grayson Bailey, are two youtubers and influencers that have almost 11 million followers on YouTube alone. Especially their comedy videos have brought them huge success in the last few years. Louis Vuitton also seems to be a fan of the two and negotiated a contract with them in which the Youtubers are part of campaigns, Youtube videos or fashion shows. For the Spring/Summer Show 2020, the French luxury house shot an exclusive VLOG, which shows the twins before their first big Louis Vuitton show and lets them experience first hand how they become part of the fashion world.

BTS at Virgil Abloh and prominent fans of his collections

The designer and founder of OFF-WHITE Virgil Abloh is currently the most popular designer in the fashion world and has been the chief designer for Louis Vuitton’s men’s collection for the last 2 years. With his extraordinary designs and his down-to-earth manner the 39-year-old has become a real darling among the celebrities. His good friend Naomi Campbell gets a glimpse behind his life and his collections for an interview with the British Vouge and also the fashion blogger Loïc Prigent gets the American at his famous fashion vlogs, among other stars, like Emma Chamberlain in front of the camera.
Here is an interview between the probably hottest designer of our time, Virgil Abloh, the Mens chief designer of Louis Vuitton and the British fashion icon Naomi Campbell for the YouTube channel of Vogue UK. It’s easy to see that they have been friends for years and it’s just fun to listen when Abloh talks about the different steps of his career and his collections for Louis Vuitton.

Hands-on and rare insights through Loïc Prigent

On his Youtube channel, Frenchman Loïc Prigent shoots exclusive “behind-the-scenes” videos with the most popular designers and collections, taking fashion fans on a unique journey to gain a unique insight into the fashion world. The video consists of short interviews with the celebrity guests as well as first previews of the collection. Also at the Louis Vuitton Fall-Winter 2019 fashion show Prigent was present with the camera and caught stars like Emma Chamberlain, Jaden and Willow Smith or Emma Stone.

Fashion-Vlog Spring/Summer 2020 – with Emma Chamberlain and Cody Fern

Once again an exciting video of the French fashion blogger Loïc Prigent at this year’s spring/summer fashion show in Paris. Besides the first-class show itself, many prominent guests such as Emma Chamberlain, Cody Fern, Laura Harrier or Elane Zhong were present and made the event a real spectacle.

Moncler – French luxury between Will Smith & Milly Bobby Brown

Moncler – a brand that has developed from a French mountaineering outfitter to one of the largest Italian high-end fashion companies and has been delighting luxurious customers from all over the world with its designs and innovations for almost 70 years now. Influenced by the iron temperatures of the French Alps, Moncler today combines exclusive designs with high-quality comfort.

Moncler – History of foundation, company and legacy

Founded in 1952 by René Ramillion in Grenoble, France, he initially produced equipment for mountain expeditions. His products achieved rapid success and Ramillion expanded his range to include the company’s current flagship, the down jacket. Only a short time later, the young people of the Italian upper class in Milan discovered the voluminous down jackets for themselves and made them into a must-have. In 2003 Remo Ruffini, who owned his first Moncler down jacket at the age of 14, bought the company and transformed the traditional French company, which was in crisis at the time, into one of the biggest Italian luxury fashion brands.

No product of the Italian luxury brand embodies the brand DNA more than the down jacket. Once a means to an end to protect mountaineers from the icy cold during mountain adventures, it became the flagship and probably the most sold product of the Moncler brand. Initially weighing just under one and a half kilos, it is now featherweight at 150 grams and is a comfortable and warming fashion piece popular with prominent fashion icons such as Naomi Campbell, as well as with customers with high purchasing power from all over the world.

The Italian luxury fashion group Moncler has revolutionized and abolished itself, as well as the basic concept of the fashion world, to publish two to four collections a year. With the project Genius, it is taking a unique and innovative step in the fashion industry. The brand collaborates with up to 10 different designers each year and brings new capsule collections to the market throughout the year.

Fashion show – from dreamlike locations to exciting performances

Since 1943, fashion shows have been held in the world’s fashion capitals by the most important designers. The presentation of the latest fashion creations is of course in the foreground. However, the entertainment aspect is playing an increasingly important role and fashion shows are becoming huge spectacles that millions of viewers follow on social networks like YouTube or Instagram. Also Moncler could already cause a stir in the past with his shows and put extraordinary fashion shows on the legs. Three of the probably most worth seeing fashion shows can be found here.

Moncler’s most spectacular fall/winter fashion show

Moncler’s Grenoble Autumn/Winter 16/17 fashion show is probably the most spectacular show of the Italian luxury brand. From nowhere, about 80 athletes dressed in blue uniforms appear at the beginning of the show and offer the audience a perfectly choreographed performance, as known from American college sports events. The stomping of the men creates a military sound throughout Lincoln Center – the audience is fascinated. After a few minutes, the models enter and run to the beat of the marching sounds. A truly unique and unprecedented fashion show, which caused admiration from both the audience and the rest of the fashion world.

Autumnal mood at Paris Fashion Week

In an autumnal forest location at the Grand Palais in Paris, Guambattista Valli shows his autumn/winter Haute-Couture Collection for Moncler. The music and the ambience of the show let you feel the vibe and also the audience of fashion fans, influencers or customers obviously enjoy the show. Especially feminine shapes, paired with male garments and decorated with roses and leaves make this collection a real highlight.

“Back to the roots” at Moncler’s Spring/Summer 17

With the Gamme Bleu Spring/Summer 2017 fashion show, Moncler takes its audience out into nature for a camping holiday. Inspired by the company’s beginnings as a camping and mountaineering fashion company, the luxury house created an exciting collection with an equally exciting show. The setting is reminiscent of a campsite and the show begins with people dressed as teddy bears patrolling the campsite. Extraordinary for high fashion, but unique and special. The guests of the show were thrilled and Moncler caused quite a stir with this show.

Moncler – unique and sensational campaigns

Marketing and advertising are important aspects of fashion to stand out. Moncler likes to stage its fashion in special and extraordinary campaigns and reaches its audience in a spectacular way. Two campaign highlights of the luxury brand can be found here…
This advertising campaign of Moncler shows the spectacular ski slope of Grenobles, the place of origin of the Moncler brand and leaves the spectator breathless when …….. presents his daring stunts. Moncler stands for high quality and design – especially winter sportsmen love the down jackets and winter accessories of the luxury brand!

Moncler Ski – Campaign in the desert

In the campaign CARAMEL LAND of the noble brand Moncler, two friends take the spectators on an exciting and extraordinary ski tour. Armed only with a mobile phone, the two of them film themselves in a breathtaking setting in the middle of the desert and let you be part of their unique experience up close. Definitely an interesting and varied campaign, which has never been seen before at other luxury brands!

Collaborations – hype between luxury and streetwear

Moncler was one of the first luxury brands to take up the hype about collaborations and completely revolutionized the concept of classic fashion shows. Since 2018, the Italian fashion house no longer organizes fashion shows, but goes a new way with the project GENIUS. Every year they collaborate with up to 10 different designers from all branches of fashion and release capsule collections, some of which are limited editions, throughout the year. The hype and success behind this idea is enormous and fashion lovers compete for the coveted pieces.

7 Moncler Fragment Hiroshi Fujiwara

Hiroshi Fujiwara – the Japanese is especially known during the Millenials and among music fans a little legend. The former Hip-Hop Dj not only inspires a young target group with his label Fragment, but also created a streetwear collection together with the Italian luxury house Moncler, which caused a huge sensation among his community. The video for the campaign shows a young man jumping through different time zones in a futuristic world. Together with the background music of the Japanese, this allows the viewer to dive into another world and experience the spirit of Fujiwara first hand.

8 Moncler Palm Angels

The clip gives an insight into the probably most sought-after collaboration of the brand Moncler – with none other than the Italian streetwear brand PALM ANGELS. No matter if Rihanna, Kanye West or Jay-Z, nobody who doesn’t love and almost idolizes the label. The collection includes eye-catching colours and crass design effects, as well as graffiti prints on down jackets or bags full of colourful moncler logos. The fashion fans were thrilled and within a very short time Pieces, like the pink jacket from the campaign, were sold out. Moncler X Palm Angels – probably one of the most exciting brand collaborations of the last years!

Collaborations with Star Designer – Moncler Pierpaolo Piccioli

Moncler’s collaboration with the Valentino designer Pierpaolo Piccioli is as fascinating as it is shocking. The clip of the campaign shows models in ball gowns walking around a chic hall – but they don’t wear conventional couture dresses as known from Valentino, but down dresses in eye-catching colours and patterns. Whoever sees the collection for the first time will certainly be amazed, possibly startled. Also in the fashion world the creations caused a sensation, but stars like the actress Ezra Miller or the model Liya Kebede already wore the dresses on the red carpet and provided a real eye-catcher.

Mode Influencer – between social media and French luxury

In times of social media, many luxury brands reach young target groups primarily through platforms like Instagram or YouTube. Of course, many of the big fashion houses rely on influencers or celebrities with a huge reach. Moncler also uses the influence of these and has worked with popular and successful influencers. To the Genius Launch Party the fashion house invited no less than Milly Bobby Brown, one of the hottest idols of the youth. But also Will Smith, one of the most famous Hollywood stars was a guest at the party and took his more than 8 million YouTube followers with him. Also the cooperation with popular models like Lucky Blue Smith of course caused a lot of attention, so Moncler decided to book him for his F/W 15/16 campaign and let the fans participate with “Behind the Scenes” shots.

The blue box gives the whole thing an enormous recognition value, decorated with a large white velvet bow. This little blue box is well known everywhere for its enormous value, both in price and emotion.

History of the foundation – from stationery to Hollywood stars

From precious diamonds to famous Hollywood movies, Tiffany’s has quite a long history and it is definitely worth mentioning! In 1837 the company was founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young and the first store was opened on Broadway in New York. For this reason, there is also a complete collection of the brand with the title 1837, in honor of the year of its foundation. Initially the store was called ‘The Fancy Goods Store’ and traded in stationery. When Charles took over the sole management in 1853, he shortened the name to Tiffany & Company.

The box in Tiffany blue one color as trademark & Recognition

The world-famous Tiffany Blue Box, which you get with every purchase is probably a little highlight in itself. Not to forget that the company owns a completely unique colour. But the beautiful blue boxes are not only nice to look at, the company also sets great store by keeping up with the times and therefore the boxes are reusable and recyclable.

Audrey Hepburn – Breakfast at Tiffany’s

It is nothing new that the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of the most elegant and classic films of all time. Starring the wonderful Audrey Hepburn, who is probably an icon in her own right. The film, which is based on the novella by Truman Capote, has made the label and especially the store on 5th Avenue in New York a true showcase.

Most memorable is the scene where Holly (played by Audrey Hepburn) is standing in front of the Tiffany & Co store at 5 a.m., dressed in a black Givenchy dress and enjoying a coffee and croissant. The film has been around for generations and has given the label a cult status.

Tiffany & Co the jewelry label – rings, necklaces and perfumes with style

If you think of Tiffany & Co, you think of beautiful engagement rings and classic silver necklaces, maybe a few beads here or there? A big diamond, or just a small one? For more than 180 years Brand has been enchanting with the most fantastic pieces of jewellery you can find. If you dream of getting married, you probably also dream of a ring from Tiffany & Co and that for generations!

Rings from Tiffany & Co – gold, silver & rose gold with shining diamonds

The artfully crafted rings are unique & iconic. They are famous and popular for their timeless designs and the high-quality workmanship of the rings. The founder Charles Tiffany was the first jeweler to understand that the diamond is a symbol of love and established this idea in his craft and legacy. When one speaks of quality, there are many steps that the company takes into account when manufacturing its diamond rings. After the exact selection of the origin, the diamonds are about the brilliance, the play of light and the carat weight. For the further processing of the diamonds it requires a perfect interaction of art and science. The diamond is cut to the perfect shape, polished and then attached to the perfectly fitting ring. The work is worthwhile, because it is exactly this intensive processing that makes people believe in the quality of the brand.

Glamorous engagement rings – the Believe in Love campaign

Tiffany & Co launched the Believe in Love campaign in which different couples had the chance to talk about their relationship. The goal: to promote love! The company celebrates the eternal power of love and that’s exactly what they brought into focus with this campaign. Tiffany doesn’t just want to provide the engagement ring, Tiffany wants to be part of the complete love story.

The jewelry label is probably one of the most luxurious and expensive, with the most exquisite locations and prices. Nevertheless, there is also a selection of necklaces, earrings and bracelets in the range, which are payable for a normal earner. The reason for this is that Tiffany’s wants to be a label that people love and honour. However, not every young girl should have to dream of one day getting an expensive wedding ring from the brand, but preferably start developing a love for jewellery even before that. The label has managed to maintain its exquisite reputation as one of the few luxury brands, although they have also added a few cheaper items to their range.

Designer company Louis Vuitton – the history

There is much more to learn about the company than just the questions mentioned above, so if you want to enter the fashion universe of designer Louis Vuitton, you can find out all about the founding and development of the company and awards the label has already won.

Revolution through suitcases – the beginning

At the age of 16, Louis Vuitton made an important decision that would change his life and that of his son forever. Even before his apprenticeship in Paris, craftsmanship and suitcase making were in his blood. In Paris he started an apprenticeship in the house of Monsieur Maréchal. At that time, suitcases were only used for the purpose of transporting his own objects from A to B as protected as possible. Design did not play a major role. Soon the craft was successful and Vuitton had to employ more than 100 people by 1900. 14 years later there were already 225 employees.

George Vuitton – invention of the pattern & lock

George Vuitton is the son of the craftsman Louis Vuitton. He took over his father’s studio, because it was now an integral part of the family and was simply continued to be used.  Like his father, he was always careful to protect the contents of his customers’ suitcases. So he developed the suitcase lock, which he also had patented after the finished development. With this idea he turned the suitcases into real treasure chests. But it was not to end there. George was the inventor of the well known LV pattern, which even today should not be foreign to anyone. Stylistically, the brown pattern was based on Art Nouveau and it should protect the suitcases against forgery. Thanks to George the label expanded all over the world and became very present in cities like New York.

Atelier and workshop today – museum, designer & custom-made products

The studio in which the first cases and collections were created is still preserved today. The family home is now a private museum. In the workshops in France, 170 employees still work on designs and the production of leather goods, as well as special designs or similar.

Aesthetic collections – the best fashion shows

In addition to the classics that the company offers, Louis Vuitton should not be missing at any Fashion Week. Whoever becomes part of the fashion shows becomes part of something great. Spectacular backdrops and beautiful dresses are presented and all the energy sprays with creativity.

Paris Runway – a spectacle between light and fashion

The interplay of light, darkness, a central location in Paris and the presented collection has an almost magical effect. The aesthetics are touching and for every fan of fashion it is a dream to be there and see it live. Surrounded by water and glass, the catwalk was a real aesthetic experience.

Burberry – timeless & modern trenchcoats & scarves for ladies and gentlemen

Burberry – A brand that is difficult to pass by. Whether you are a fashion fan or not, the brand has been around for over 150 years and is well established. Whether scarf or coat, the classics of the British brand are very popular and that for women and men. A long history has shaped the company and Burberry has been all the more successful in recent years. Its commitment to young artists is also evident, with the Burberry Foundation, which was established in 2008, supporting schools and other creative associations.

The birth of the label – history, founders & beginnings

When the fashion company was founded in 1856, the designer Thomas Burberry exclusively created coats and outdoor clothing for men. Thomas was a so-called gentleman’s outfitter who opened his first shop in London, England. The first shop opened in 1891 and has had a strong influence on the fashion industry ever since. Whether movie stars like Audrey Hepburn in the outstanding movie ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ in the early 60’s, or celebrities like Kim Kardashian West and Victoria Beckham today.

Thomas Burberry & Descendants – style finding of the label

Whether it’s the familiar check pattern or the cream trench coat, Burberry has created many recognizable features over the last 150 years and over many different generations of designers.
With the aim of saving people from British weather, Thomas Burberry created the Burberry label at the age of just 21. He opened his first store. His revolutionary idea of using a rainproof but breathing fabric enabled him to create weatherproof clothing stylishly accessible to everyone. He was one of the first fashion designers to use Garbadine fabric for his jackets and coats. Until then, the fabric was still very uncomfortable and difficult to wear. The first patent was registered in 1888 on Garbadine, which was just 3 years before the shop was founded. In 1912 the time had come and Thomas Burberry patented the Tielock-Coat, which is the predecessor of the famous trench coat and can be closed with a simple lacing belt.

Military clothing in World War I – the trench coat

During the First World War the famous Burberry Trench Coat was invented. Initially it was only used for military purposes, because you could carry smaller bombs or pipes in the big pockets and use the belt as a belt for weapons.
Thomas Burberry left a great legacy during his lifetime, with which he still inspires countless people today. The timeless designs have become true classics and today it is impossible to imagine life without them.

Burberry Foundation – Promotion of young talents

Since 2008, Burberry has been actively promoting young talent and successfully so. Whether singer, actor or painter, Burberry values people’s creativity and wants to support it in the best possible way.

Support for young artists & Talents – Burberry Foundation

Since its inception in 2008, the Burberry Foundation has been committed to supporting young artists. The central focus is actually everything that has to do with dance, film, theatre and art. The company’s motto is very clear: creativity should be fed, and fed as best it can. The foundation also cooperates with selected schools in England to promote the academic and personal development of the students and to ensure that they have a good start in their own lives and in their future career choices. The organisation has already donated over 2.8 million British pounds and there is no end in sight.

LGBTQ Community – Burberry’s contribution

Support for marginalised groups is also encouraged, in the most creative way. With a stunning collection consisting exclusively of rainbow or rainbow-coloured garments. Dedicated to all gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders and all others who are part of the LGBTQ community. The rainbow collection was presented at a gigantic fashion show in a sea of color and will probably be remembered for a long time.

Burberry’s Awards

  • ‘Best Fashion Designer’ for Christopher Bailey, Bambi 2007
  • ‘British Designer of the Year’ for Christopher Bailey, 2005
  • ‘International Award of Council of Fashion Designer of America’ for Christopher Bailey, 2010

Fashion highlights – Cult trench coat & Scarf for ladies & Men

If you think of Burberry, you probably have the image of a cultivated woman in the streets of London, in a trench coat. Or a chic, older lady visiting a cafe with her dog and wearing a scarf with the famous beige-black-red-white check pattern. Everybody can imagine something under the fire and this thanks to the statement clothes that have been established over the years.

Timeless trench coat – from Audrey Hepburn to Kim Kardashian

Although the nude-coloured coat initially only had a practical and less a fashionable aspect, it quickly established itself as a real fashion statement. After the war, men, but also women, took great pleasure in the waterproof coats and began to wear them as a fashion statement. Famous actors liked to wear them on film sets to stay warm and dry between scenes and shoots. Today the coat is loved and honored by the hippest models, fashion bloggers and critics. A campaign with Kate Moss and Cara Delevigne, 2 of the biggest names on the market, made even the last ones realize how much style wearing a trench coat brings.

The coat is worn open or closed. It is usually in a light cream tone, but is also available in many other colour variations and looks beautiful and classic in every tone. It reaches up to the knees and is closed at the waist with a fabric belt and a metal buckle. 8 parallel buttons on the front serve as a fashionable accessory and the inside is decorated in the typical check pattern of the brand Burberry.

Fashionable scarves & scarves for women and men

The breakthrough of the famous Burberry pattern, which is also patented as such, was achieved by the company in 1920 and for the first 40 years it was only sewn into the famous trenchcoats and coats. It was not until 1967 that the classic Burberry scarf was designed, and this by a funny coincidence. The manager of the Parisian Burberry shops held an exhibition in which he presented the coats upside down and showed the check pattern. People wanted more of the pattern and so one thing led to another. The beginning of a new era for the brand had begun and the production of cashmere scarves could begin.

Today the scarf is considered a noble status symbol. Whoever thinks of himself buys a Burberry scarf. The style is recognized every time and that is exactly why it is a real statement piece in the wardrobe.

With their own dissatisfaction with the fashion world, the brothers created wearable clothing, or rather: ghetto fashion for people who drink at the subway. Demna worked for Maison Martin Margiela and Louis Vuitton, where frustration encouraged him to make a difference. The goal is not to create new fashion, but to create another fashion. Drafts should be completed during the creative process and so exciting collections are created again and again. Brainstorming in the office is the new keyword for the label’s collection planning.

First own fashion show – Fashion Week Finals Berlin

As a guest at a fashion show, theatre play, concert or similar, you hardly notice anything about the backstage area. Behind the scenes a lot happens in the last minutes before the event. In 2019 Cocaine Models in cooperation with FIV Magazin and Haubentaucher Berlin organized the last Berlin Fashion Week Show with the following Aftershow Party. Starting with the location and equipment, models and designers, up to music and catering, employees and invitations. A task you have to grow into first. We interviewed our team member Dilara after the exciting weeks and asked her to organize, plan and realize a fashion show.

Fashion Week Finals – Fashion Show Planning

CM: Dear Dilara, the exhausting weeks are over. Despite the rain the show was a great success and the invited guests were satisfied. Looking back, what was this experience like for you?

Dilara: As soon as I start to review everything, I first notice what we have achieved in the shortest time. It went differently and even better. I can’t thank the team enough for helping me so much in those stressful moments! For having planned everything in such a short time, it was a complete success. The next shows can only get better.

CM: How did it all work out? Who organized what?

Dilara: Well, if you ask me, we all worked through everything. It would be wrong to say that was my job and that was his job. I would even say, I was thrown into the cold water but it was a lot of fun! First of all we, the main organizers, made contact by phone and wrote down the general ToDo’s. These points were still relatively well distributed. In Berlin we worked together for two weeks on the spot every day with meetings and office time.

CM: The ToDo’s, how did you work them out? Or did you have a ready-made plan that you could simply work through?

Dilara: It would have been nice but no we didn’t. As a private person we simply asked ourselves: What do you need for a fashion show? Of course, we didn’t think of everything in the first moment. But many points simply build on each other.

CM: How did you come up with the location?

Dilara: I’ve been taking part in the Berlin Fashion Week for 2 years now and have always had fun. But I don’t find the E Werk as a FW location so exciting after the second or third day. With the Great Crested Grebe we simply got one of the most exclusive event locations in Berlin. The catwalk on the pool was simply perfect and fitted well to the designers of Nil & Mon and LinArt Project.

CM: What kind of fashion week planning is the A&O?

Dilara: You should be able to work spontaneously, creatively and organized. All three components work together in the end, of course, but everyone in the team is important and should be able to complete their tasks independently. And if there is a problem – then you get creative! Communication within the team is also incredibly important. If problems arise 2 hours before the start of the show, which could have been solved much earlier, everyone in the team is stressed. Just to avoid that, you can talk about everything and discuss little things at any time.

CM: So you’ve already worked in event management. There are also a lot of instructions on the Internet. But what distinguishes the Fashion Week Finals?

Dilara: Fashion Week is the event of the year for those interested in fashion. Everywhere designers, stylists, actors, models, magazines and the press travel to see what’s trendy this year and report. The pressure to present a good show is correspondingly high. I think you shouldn’t work completely according to instructions. Of course the structure is the most important thing, but you should get along with spontaneous ideas and changes in the last minutes.

CM: Can you list once – what did you mainly take care of?

Dilara: The accreditation and guest list with the seat coordination was definitely a lot of work. As a model agency we did an open casting for models before and were able to win some more boys and girls for the show. Since I was in daily contact with the designers, I took on extra sponsorships. For example, I organized accessories and make-up sponsors, all of course on WIN WIN situation. We are definitely looking forward to new projects, more fashion shows!

CM: It was a complete success and we wish you a lot of fun!

Prada – Italian craftsmanship and modern design!

Prada, still one of the old-established family businesses where real craftsmanship is performed. Particular emphasis is placed on the processing of high-quality materials and leather goods. A large part is still produced in Italy today. Read more about today’s luxury empire here:

Prada: Foundation of the luxury company

The Italian luxury company was founded in 1913 by the brothers Mario Prada and Martino Prada and originally bore the name “Fratelli Prada”, which translates as “Prada Brothers”. In 1913 they opened their first shop in the elegant Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan. The initial focus was on the manufacture and sale of exclusive leather goods, including gloves, bags and suitcases. In 1919, Prada was appointed royal purveyor to the court for its high-quality products. Today’s logo still shows this, depicting the Savoy coat of arms and the four eight knots.

Shoe production was launched in 1979 and simple models in muted colours were added to the range. These, however, formed a strong contrast to the shrill and sexist fashion of the other brands at the time, but triggered a steep rise in the brand a few years later. In 1983, the second Prada store was opened in Via della Spiga, also in Milan.

Granddaughter & heiress of the luxury empire: Miuccia Prada

After the death of Mario Prada in 1958, granddaughter Miuccia Prada and her siblings Alberto and Marina inherited the company from their mother Luisa, who withdrew from the business and left it to her children. With the takeover of Miuccia Prada, the time-honoured and bold leather goods company developed into a world-renowned fashion label.

In 1984 she created a black backpack in the higher price segment, made of waterproof nylon material Pocone, which bore the name “Vela”. However, it was not until a few years later that the revolutionary breakthrough came and it was followed by wallets and travel bags made of the same material.

“Prada Ugly” – Fashion for young women

At the beginning of the 1980s, numerous exclusive Prada stores opened, leading to an enormous increase in both sales and the company’s reputation. In 1988 Prada, under the direction of Miuccia Prada, created the first Prêt-à-Porter collection for women. In the early 1990s, Prada received special recognition for the production of thick lenses, old-fashioned fabrics and retro-style cuts. The choice of colours with bright tones was also very unusual. People associated the term “Prada Ugly” with this collection, which was aimed primarily at fashionable young women.

Prada accessible to all: online shop makes the breakthrough

It was not until 1933 that a minimalist Prada men’s collection was developed and added to the range. In 2000, during a revolutionary period of change, the first sunglasses and prescription glasses were launched under the name “Prada”. In 2004, the first fragrance for women, “Prada”, was produced in collaboration with the Spanish PUIG Group. In 2006 the fragrance collection was extended for the first time with a fragrance for men called “Prada Man”. Since 2007, there has also been an online shop where only a small range, which has been expanded over time, is available.

The company, which originally only produced leather goods, is now a globally recognized company. Nevertheless, leather goods such as shoes and handbags are the biggest source of income. Even today, 85% of the production is still carried out in Italy.

Luxury brand: VIP’s wear Prada

Numerous celebrities dress up with fashion and accessories from the luxury brand, such as Victoria Secret model Barbara Palvin, singer Katy Perry and actor Douglas Booth.

Hand & luxury class travel bags

From the very beginning, the label produced bags and other leather products. The absolute classics are still in the range and adorn the elegant woman of today, of all ages. Also ideal for the office. Gradually more and more unusual models were added and materials such as basket and pearls decorated the models. But not only small leather bags are produced by Prada, also travel bags for women and men as well as briefcases are produced by the Italian luxury label and thus make travelling and working an experience. The models are available in different versions and colours in several stores worldwide, also in the online shop.

Prada classic in high style: Sneaker, Flats & High Heels

Prada is particularly known for the unique elegance of its shoe models. High shoes are made of high-quality materials such as satin, silk and leather and adorn delicate women’s feet. The sneaker models or flats are also popular purchases from the Italian luxury label. Unique classics, are now supplemented by modern versions with rivets and stones, with their help the young audience is to be addressed!

Versace – The luxury brand: Women & Men Collections + Fashion Show Extras

The luxury brand badly there and its start as a mega empire – The mega brand Versace is on everyone’s lips. The clothes and shoes as well as handbags and accessories adorn the catwalks of the fashion shows all over the world. Again and again Versace inspires with new creations and unusual designs. The Medusa logo is known all over the world and Versace enjoys a high reputation in the global fashion world. The world’s most famous models such as Noamie Campell and Claudia Schiffer ran for Versace and many famous faces have become a trademark of the fashion label. The initially small family business quickly developed into a mega empire of superlatives.

Versace the “Master of Neo-Baroque”

The fashion brand Versace was founded by Gianni Versace in Milan in 1978. The German textile dealer Albert Eickhoff saw the talent in the then still unknown designer Gianni Versace and was the first to promote him. The designs convinced Eickhoff so much that the young artist’s first fashion show took place on Eickhoff’s initiative in 1978. The location for the fashion show in which Gianni presented his own collection of pastel shades to the world for the first time was the Stadttheater in Lippstadt. Shortly afterwards, the designer opened his first boutique in Milan’s Via Spiga. The Versace men’s collection was not long in coming and attracted attention with its daring designs. The feedback on the collection was mixed. The designs were described by professionals as both daring and vulgar, as well as revolutionary and innovative. The brand “Versace” was born. Gianni himself received the title of “Master of Neo-Baroque” thanks to his innovative and daring creations. After Giannis death in 1997, his siblings Donatella and Santo Versace took over the fashion company, but remained true to Giannis style.

Fashion style of Versace and their familiar faces

Ginni Versace’s creations regularly made headlines, sometimes positive, sometimes negative! His collections were always daring and provocative and either liked them or were a real faux pas for some eyes. Versace’s designs still attract the attention of the fashion world today with saturated colours, figure-hugging cuts, short skirts, colourful prints, shiny fabrics and deep necklines. In the 1980s, Gianni designed costumes for stage and theatre performances and made a name for himself working with international artists and establishing himself in the fashion scene as a costume designer and fashion designer. The daring evening dresses were inspired by various artists and Greek mythology, as can easily be seen from the logo of the brand! The decadent fashion decorates the logo of the fashion house Versace, the head of Medusa. Materials such as leather, rubber and metal were incorporated into his collections in a variety of ways. Versace and his family practiced an extravagant lifestyle of their own, which was also reflected in the fashion artist’s designs. Top models such as Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Claudia Schiffer regularly walked the catwalk for Versace and stylishly presented the extravagant dresses. The supermodels were soon associated with the brand itself and portrayed as the faces of those. Madonna and Demi Moore also modelled for the famous luxury label.

Sneakers by Versace in urban neo-baroque

Always extravagant, always slightly over the top! So are the shoes from Versace. Even if the brand orients itself to the new urban trend, the fashion house always remains true to itself. Whether higheel, sneaker or a combination of both, the brand’s gold-plated logo creates a glamorous look. The pairing between urban and high fashion can be seen in this shoe design. It is a sneaker with a kind of wedge heel. The golden details and ornamentation allude to the neo-baroque look.

This clash of different styles can also be seen in this Versace design. The patterns typical of the brand are reminiscent of ancient Greece. The shoe takes up the modern street look and contrasts with the print. Versace proves that the combination can work perfectly.

Extravagant handbags of superlatives

Versace is synonymous with Italian luxury and extravagant aesthetics. The youthful line of Versace jeans offers a cheaper alternative to the main line. The casual pieces embody the style of the brand. The Versace Jeans shoulder bag is a luxurious candy for the arm. The playful prints and a variety of shapes, sizes, colours and styles offer a feminine look and numerous variations and combinations.

Couture, Quilted Shoulder Bag

With this shoulder bag you can style everything from the casual jeans look to wild leather nights. The bag has a magnetic closure and a belt closure with the Brand logo. A detachable shoulder strap hides inside the bag.

The unmistakable look of the Versace Icon Bag

The unmistakable Versace aesthetics can also be found in the icon bag with baroque print. The bag is made of leather and has an exceptional quality in Savage Baroque print. The clasp is decorated with the round Medusa logo and noble padlock. The bag has a timeless design and can be combined with almost all outfits.

High Class pure: Versace and her sunglasses collection

The Versace Shield Sunnie from the new collection makes it very difficult for the other glasses to outbid them. The reflective effect of the glasses makes the wearer look more anonymous and mysterious. The trendy glasses make every outfit a highlight and make you an eye-catcher.

Luxur men’s and women’s fragrances

The mega brand Versace is also celebrating great success with its fragrance creations. The most popular and irresistible fragrances are listed here.

The number 1 men’s fragrance: Versace Eros

Versaces Eros is by far the most popular men’s fragrance of the brand and rightly so. The perfume is named after the Greek god of love. The fragrance in the blue bottle reflects the sensually strong man. The combination of fresh mint leaves, lemon, green apple, tonka bean, amber and vanilla creates a male aura to fall in love with. Masculine notes such as zender wood and atlas add intensity to the perfume. A fragrance to linger in.

The most popular fragrance for women: Versace Eros Pour Femme

Created by Donatella Versace herself, the fragrance reflects the strong, passionate and seductive woman. Notes of lemon, jasmine and pomegranate make the fragrance exciting and distinctive. Woody notes like sandalwood, ambrox, musk give the fragrance its strength. The bottle convinces with its noble design.

Versace Crystal Noir the temptingly good smell of woman

Right after Versace Eros, the Versace Crystal Noir fragrance is at the top of Versace’s most popular fragrances. Crystal Noir, with spicy notes of cardamom, pepper and ginger, harmonizes the scents of gardenia, peony and orange blossom to sweeten the senses. The fragrance symbolizes sensual seduction and pure femininity, combining light but perceptible notes of sandalwood and musk to produce a perfectly played symphony of fragrances.

Colorful fashion shows, questions for Donatella Versace & Product Unboxing

Spring/ Summer 2020 Collection and Show

The Spring / Summer 2020 collection from Versace presented itself at Fashion Week as a celebration of modern masculinity while remaining true to the iconic characteristics of the brand. Colourful prints, different nuances are combined with innovative silhouettes. The show subtly shows a young man growing up. The oversized silhouettes and status symbols such as racing cars are reminiscent of this and are intended to allude to young people. The Versace man can express himself without restrictions. Powerful messages are expressed through playful accents. Contrasts are created by the animal prints and fabrics in combination with the formal dress style. The entire presentation of the show reflects the blossoming, for example the floral decoration around the catwalk. The extravagant Versace Spirit can be felt in every detail of the show.

 

Dolce & Gabbana, the designer duo!

Together, the designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have created a fashion empire that is indispensable in today’s market. The luxurious fashion house Dolce & Gabbana has been celebrating successes at dizzying heights for decades and is popular with all age groups. Whether the “Woolmark Award” or the “Perfume Academy Award”, the designers have jointly designed their way to the top of the fashion world.

The story behind the designer duo

Dolce & Gabbana was founded in 1985 by the designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. The two colleagues met for the first time at the Italian fashion house Gabbana in Milan when Domenico Dolce applied for a job there. Stefano Gabbana immediately recognised his talent and the collaboration between the two began. They presented their first fashion collection in 1985 and opened the doors of their first store a year later.

Jerseys, Underwear & Swimwear by Dolce & Gabbana

Over the years, the designer duo began to design their own jersey line, underwear and swim costumes in addition to their classic fashion line in the high-priced range. The luxury fashion house finally expanded into the USA, Japan and various other countries, where Dolce & Gabbana founded their own showroom in 1990.

The men’s collection and other awards

The men’s collection was not long in coming and in 1992 inspired customers from all over the world. As one of the most innovative men’s collections of the year, the D&G collection won the Woolmark Award.  The company also celebrated further successes with perfumes for both women and men. In 2005, The New Yorker wrote about Dolce & Gabbana: “Dolce and Gabbana will be in the 2000s what Prada was in the 1990s and Armani in the 1980s – gli stilisti, whose sensibility will shape a decade. In the years that followed, the designer duo received several other personal awards. Dolce and Gabbana is still one of the most successful fashion brands in the world today.

Dolce & Gabbana also conquers the cosmetics industry

Dolce & Gabbana also offers a wide range of products in the cosmetics industry and is popular with young, but also mature ladies. The luxury brand offers everything a beauty heart desires, from pressed powder and macara to lipsticks and lip gloss. However, the brand celebrated the most successes with its excellent perfumes.

Dolce & Gabbana inspires with fragrance combinations

The designers further expanded their market position in the 90s. In 1992, the luxury fashion brand launched its first perfume on the market, the women’s fragrance “Dolce & Gabbana Parfum”, winning an award from the Perfume Academy. The brand’s first men’s fragrance was named “Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme” and also won an award from the same Academy shortly afterwards.

“Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme”

The first men’s fragrance of the luxury brand has not only appealed to Dolce & Gabbana fans immediately. With Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme is a spicy fresh fragrance. The charismatic bergamot, juicy mandarin and fresh lemon put the head of the fragrance together. At the heart are lavender, sage, tarragon and cardamom. The fragrance suits the stylish and self-confident man at any time of year and situation. The bottle is designed to fit perfectly into the palm of the male hand.

Dolce & Gabbana presents ”The One” distinctive fragrance

A classic from Dolce & Gabbana is the “The One” fragrance. Even the name of the sensual fragrance sounds appealing to every woman, because every woman wants to be “The One”. The fragrance is flowery, elegant and yet glamorous, perfect for every occasion and every situation. The face of the fragrance is also cleverly chosen. The beautiful actress Scarlett Johansson is the ambassador of “The One”.

The luxury brand relies on Flower Power with ”Floral Drop”

Dolce & Gabbana is again offering something innovative on the perfume market with its Floral Drops fragrance. The packaging is already elaborate and of high quality. The perfume is hidden in a small box of white leather. The box can be opened. Inside, there are small white flowers that already indicate the fragrance. In the middle of the flowers there is a frosted glass bottle and a cap in the shape of a flower. In any case, the bottle leaves an impression, which makes it almost a pity to use the fragrance. The fragrance itself is – who would have thought – very flowery. White amaryllis, white narcissus and white water lily are the main notes of this Dolce & Gabbana perfume. The floral-fresh top note can be associated with a spring morning. The scent of neroli leaves and papaya blossom rounds off the perfume.

As expected, the fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent, whose name is on everyone’s lips and his logo (YSL) is known worldwide, plunges us into a new world. With a giant mirror in which the models are mirrored and the lights shine up and down, he lets us dive into a kind of illusion. The colours of his clothes are black and grey. Long coats and fancy dresses with glowing elements remind us of diamonds.
The location changes and the music becomes more calming. Black light and neon glowing design run across the catwalk. It seems as if the dresses magically run over the carpet themselves.

A colourful fashion show with Jacquemus Spring 2020

The fashion show by Simon Porte Jacqemus, the French designer and founder of the fashion label Jacquemus, will thrill you with its flowery location. His models present his Spring collection on a catwalk that makes its way through a lavender field. The invited guests all sit on the edge of the front row of the show. The colours really describe the Spring theme, the colours blossom. You have the feeling of flower power in your head. He mixes a casual style with something chic and makes the clothes for it accessible to everyone.

Gucci Fall/Winter Fashion Show in Gold

The Italian fashion designer pulls out all the stops. Strikingly coloured garments and rivets, accessories such as golden ears, huge gold chains and long fur bowls magically attract the eyes of guests. The catwalk, which looks like luxurious marble and the golden lights, elevates the models on the runway into a royal sphere, as does the brand’s almost royal reputation among luxury brands. Gucci again shows that the size of his name is not unfounded. The colors of the fashion show don’t remind of Fall or Winter.

The Cruise – a time travel with Chanel

Chanel the luxury brand badly, invites the guests into a journey into the past. The location is reminiscent of a train station from the 80s. Get ready, Chanel will bring trousers back on the market with a long blow – only more elegant. The show is varied from grey to bright pink. Chanel also offers a wide and extensive range of accessories. From simple jewellery that hardly attracts attention to giant blue ribbons, the show offers a wide spectrum and many possible combinations. There is something for every taste. Chanel is proud of her name and shows us how timeless a design can be.

Versace Fall Fashion Show

It wouldn’t be Versace if you didn’t have a giant staple with her logo on it right in front of the catwalk. Versace remains faithful to his design, which the first model directly wears the well-known golden patterns on her dress. But also other outfits show this design. Golden details are a must-have for Versace. Famous models like Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid adorn the catwalk of Versace. Donnatella Versace remains true to her style. The location has a nearly 8 kind form, the guests are so distributed that there are hardly 2 rows. One has the feeling to be close to the model. The colours are daring, but Donnatella manages to create an outfit out of two biting colours that looks luxurious.

Anna K Runaway Fashion Show Fall / Winter

Directly the first model that came out showed me that Anna likes to work with other fabrics and has different ideas. Her transparent tops are extraordinary but still stylish. The looks she presents will attract the attention of the younger target groups of the fashion world. Their looks are not too unusual but different. Some of their looks are provocative but could become more appealing in the fashion world, especially with it-girls. The location is very simple, the colours are bluish.

Dior Fall/Winter Show 2019

An elderly lady opens the show in Italian, a slightly different kind of opening. The show takes place in a white-red chequered location. The style seems to have its muse in the past. Long skirts, chequered coats and hats covering the faces of the models seem to float over the catwalk. We from CM can see the details live in the first row. Sometimes a small clutch, then a handbag or rather a backpack. Dior doesn’t think much of clichés. Green seems to be the next fad. A colour that not everyone has in their wardrobe. But after the show I could imagine that many will change their mind.

Valentino Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2019/2020

Valentino invites us to a beautiful winter garden. The autumn/winter collection is presented by the models in coats and long robes, while the weather is wonderfully warm. If I had to describe the collection in one word, it would be ordinary. The style is for fashion-conscious buyers who also like to draw attention to themselves and put on an evening gown that might not be suitable for everyone. Valentino surprises with many different patterns and cuts. A small highlight are the expressive headdresses that the models wear on the catwalk. Also Gigi Hadid belongs to one of the well-known faces, which decorate the catwalk. An applause to Valentino, suitable location, suitable models and beautiful dresses. We are enthusiastic about the collection and the location.

Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2019/ 2020

Leather and long black leather boots draw our attention to the models on the catwalk. It couldn’t be more rocky. McQueen shows how stylish boots go with an elegant dress. Metallic coloured necklaces and earrings round off the Rockers style. Also the walk of the models is rather harder, the look strict. Leather jackets and leather distinguish the collection. Chequered and striped suits are once again becoming trendy here. But also pompous dresses are put into the right light by McQueen. For the location, the designer relies on a simple catwalk to set the point of view on the collection.

Givenchy Autumn/Winter 2019/ 2020

The motto of the first collection is Women’s Ready-To-Wear of the show and immediately it becomes clear what is meant. Women in long coats and blazers with wide shoulders will probably be a new one again. Givenchy also offers men a wide range of choices. The style is very simple, but still a little extravagant. The belt bag does not only fit to everyday clothes, Givenchy shows here. Also the belt on the coat looks very promising. Very important for the men: turtleneck and coat appear more and more on the catwalk. So if you want to wear the latest trend in winter, take a look at Givenchy.

Dolce & Gabbana Spring/ Summer 2019

Before the fashion show begins we are spellbound by the unique location. A huge golden wall with four mirrors reminds of the royal house. The catwalk in royal blue stretches out in front of it. For the eyes a spectacle, for the colour technique hardly a colour is omitted here. From golden suits to brightly coloured shirts and shorts, everything is on offer here. Mokkasins and private label sneakers are worn here to match the clothing. Cropped trousers are a must-have in every man’s wardrobe. Dolce & Gabbana’s collection creates a new fashion awareness for all generations and for many tastes. We at CM were delighted to have been at the Dolce& Gabbana Show.

Off-White – High Fashion meets Street Style

The absolute breakthrough in the fashion industry has been the “Off-White” brand for a few years now. Founder and designer Virgil Abloh brings a mix of high fashion and street style to the catwalks of Paris Fashion Week. The casual style of the label finds great enthusiasm especially among the younger target group! read more about the young designer and the background story of Off-White.

Streetwear with a new meaning

The exclusive fashion label was created by the American Virgil Abloh in 2012. Off-White is a kind of luxurious streetwear collection, which alludes to extreme contrasts and almost provokes. The company with the casual character focuses on high-quality natural materials and exquisite fabrics. Sporty silhouettes, graffiti prints, motifs and cuts from the 60s and 70s make up the creations of the young newcomer label and create an urban look. Off-White adapts to every season and is therefore rooted in the zeitgeist. The production is headquartered in Milan and takes up the “here and now” in an innovative and refined way.

The success of the brand came with the Street-Style-Fashion-Week. During Fashion Week, people from the fashion industry, such as models, designers, bloggers and photographers, will be photographed between show dates. These images are then photographed in blogs, online and print magazines as currently worn street-style looks. Since these looks are actually worn on the streets of the big fashion week metropolises, they are often the trigger for new trends and inspire new combinations.

Designer & Founder Virgil Abloh

The genius behind Off-White is more than just a fashion designer! Virgil Abloh is DJ, artist and designed furniture. After graduating in civil engineering and architecture, the then 26-year-old devoted himself to fashion. The designer has not only created his own label, “Off-White”, but is also the creative director of the luxury brand Louis Vuitton. Abloh has become popular in the media mainly due to the “The Ten” cooperation with Nike. Shortly after his studies the young talent got to know Kanye West, meanwhile the two together with other artists on the new album of Jay-Z and Kanye “Watch the Throne”. Abloh was involved in the design of the merch and the stage sets.

Birth hour of Off-White

Off-White was founded in 2013 and has since been managed by designer Virgil Abloh. The label’s focus is on the latest fashion, yet the brand is the source of various creative works and projects such as art, music and videos that contribute to the success of the entire company. In 2014, the designer presented his first own collection and combined high fashion with streetwear. His training as an architect was particularly noticeable in his creations in the form of geometric lines and individual prints. The unique designs were worn in numerous music videos, among others by Beyonce and Nicki Minaj. The first concept store was opened in Tokyo and others followed in Hong Kong, London and New York.

The Off-White Industry Belt

While the label celebrated rather mediocre successes in the first years shortly after its foundation, it shot through the roof with its designs in the last two years! The reason for this is the designer and his now world-famous and very minimalist, sporty creations. An example of this is the Off White belt. This gem has become an indispensable part of the constantly reinventing streetstyle fashion scene! After the belt in the industry look has gained great popularity, other artists started to copy the design. This is how the Industrial Belt Trend was born! The belts are normally used on container ships and cargo planes, but are now also tied around the hips. A creative way to use discarded belts and give them a whole new meaning!

Top 3 ways to wear the belt

The Off-White Industry belt can primarily be worn as a normal belt. It is relatively long and can be tied several times around the hip or, as is often the case, simply let the end of the belt hang down. So the iconic off-white belt look looks super casual and stylish!

As a waist belt for coats and jackets. For trench coats and coats you can replace the ribbon with the off-white belt and give the waist even more emphasis. The yellow eye-catcher gives every outfit a certain touch even in the cold autumn and winter months and is an absolute statement piece. In short, an eye catcher, without having to operate large expenditure!

A third variant to set the cool It-Piecezu stylish in scene is as a carrying strap. Simply replace the carrying strap of the bag with the belt. This not only guarantees the stable carrying strap, but also the stylish appearance! This can create great looks with off-white character and you look super casual! Especially with simple outfits in shades like black, white and natural shades you set cool contrasts and the neon band is definitely the focus.

Design for him & her

The Off-White Industry belt in unisex design can be worn by women as well as by today’s modern man! This means that countless outfits can be created and there is an extremely wide scope to combine. The sporty androgynous collections from Off-White are highly coveted by trendy streetwear fans and an absolute must-have in the wardrobe!

Pockets from Off-White

Off-White stands for streetwear with a high fashion touch! Virgil Abloh’s creations can be recognized quickly and everywhere by the Japanese inspired designs and graphic motifs. These typical off-white features can also be found in the fancy designs of the bags!

Binder Clip leather shoulder bag

The characteristic leather Binder Clip bag from Off-White can be combined with any outfit in its monochrome design. The bag is decorated with silver hardware, but can also be worn to golden details super easy. The ingenious structure is transformed into a cool contrast by the removable canvas wristband decorated with the brand’s logo. So all in all a cool piece that spices up simple and inconspicuous looks and makes a real eye-catcher on the streets!

Snake-look fanny pack

The Off-White belt bag with neon yellow accents in the snake print is a way to bring colour into play and still have your hands free for more important things! Simple outfits can be simply refreshed cool, without it getting too much. The bag is made in Italy from water-repellent fabric and offers storage space for the most important things, keys, wallet and smartphone. The stylish accessory can be worn around the waist, but also crossbody, so it is ideal for a city trip, or a visit to a festival, no matter at what time of day!

Off-White on my feet!

The breakthrough came in 2017 when designer Virgil Abloh set a milestone with the opening of the concept store in New York. Cooperating with well-known artists and brands, he realized that turning the world of all sneaker fans upside down wasn’t a problem for him. Abloh’s Off- White started the “The Ten” project in cooperation with the American sportswear brand Nike. 10 of the label’s most popular shoes were reinterpreted and redesigned, triggering an absolute hype! Collectors and fans are paying unbelievable sums to complement their brand collections with limited edition pieces.

“Hiking” Ankle Boots

The “Hiking” Ankle Boots were part of the first looks presented at Off-White’s Pre-Fall Presentation 2017. Since then the shoes are extremely popular and inspired Abloh himself to create a new version of the Ankle Boots. The new boot design is made of supple leather with metal eyelets and thick rubber sole. The designer creates the contrast in these shoes with the silver ice claw on the outside of the shoe. Especially for the cold months a real eye-catcher!

Sandal in patent leather and canvas jacquard with shearling trim

To the light skirt and jumpsuits, the Off-White sandals from patent leather fit perfectly! The unmistakable canvas jacquard logo tapes are also used here, based on the Industry Belt. The shoes are lined with fluffy Shearling and are therefore also suitable for longer distances on foot super! In order to focus solely on the shoe, the best thing to do with the rest of the outfit is to focus more on simple colour nuances.

Off-Court High-Top-Sneaker

Virgil Abloh describes herself as a sneaker fan. He draws his inspiration mainly from sport, especially from basketball. The “Off-Court” is unisex and therefore suitable for women as well as for men, like almost all Pieces at Off-White. The model is made of structured leather and is equipped with the characteristic orange cable tie. The shoes can be combined super with a suit, or maxi dress and so quite simply the typical high fashion meets-Urban look achieve! Especially the interesting colour combination makes the interplay of chic and casual super cool.

Overknee boots

“These Boots are made for walking…” The use of bizarre quotations on various pieces of clothing is clearly one of the features of Virgil Abloh’s designs. The Helveticia font has become a lasting comment of the design process. He thus creates fashion that challenges perception, “Through the use of typography and formulations, the perception of an object can be completely changed without changing anything else about it. So dare and try to express yourself more with your clothes and make a statement! It’s obvious that you can easily do that with the cool parts from Off-White!

Statement Accessories

With the right accessories, you can decide for yourself how your look should look! With off-white accessories, the next look will be a guaranteed eye-catcher and you will be at the center of the action!

“POUCH” Bag

The cheeky design is always at hand with the Off-White carrier bag! The bag is made of black, smooth leather with a simple zipper, with silver hardware, and has the imprint “Pouch” on the front. The bag, or better said “Cloutch” can be used super versatile! As a make-up case, to carry cards, telephone or other small things, but also for a quick dinner, it can be used as a stylish companion. Here again the designer’s love for typographic imprints becomes visible and suitably realized by him!

Logo Socks

Off-White has produced a cult streetwear with its unmistakable branding in an industrial style. One example is the white cotton socks. With these socks no one will go unnoticed.

Sunglasses for the international look “For your eyes only”

A mixture of retro curves, clear and angular lines and flat, narrow glasses, as well as trendy colour variations and the Off-White brand on the temples make this visionary style of extra thick acetate a real must-have. Unlike thin frames, these models do not break so quickly and are relatively robust. With these creations you have in any case also with sunshine the absolute view!

Street Chick with the Off-White Hoodies

The hoodie of Off-White is decorated with gradient stripes and arrows – two of the characteristic graphics of the label. This one is knitted in a rather roomy shape from a brushed mohair mixture, which is warm, cozy and strongly structured, super suitable for the style-conscious man! Since the foundation of Off-White, this Off-White sweater is extremely popular, but also other sweater models of the brand are very popular and inspire customers from all over the world!

DaVinci meets Fashion

With the Mona Lisa Hoodie designer Virgil Abloh once again shows his preference for prints! The clash between Highbrow Art and Urban Style picks up the spirit of the brand in this off-white hoodie. This comfortable hoodie is made in Portugal from soft cotton. The slightly oversized model has a charming print characteristic of the brand and a large hood. Super to combine with sneakers and jeans.

Painting Dirty

The Off-White Painting Dirt Jacket is without a doubt a real eye-catcher with which people’s attention will stick to you! The black sweater with multicolored paint splashes looks super cool and gives your look a great finish.

Off-White Sale

Fun facts about Off-White

Balenciaga – the hype of superlatives!

The attention for the historical luxury brand Balenciaga has increased in recent years qualitatively and quantitatively. According to Google Trends, the number of search queries on the brand has increased dramatically over the past two years, so much so that the search term “Balenciaga” has overtaken brands such as Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana in the ranking. Behind the label, founded in 1919, there is an interesting history, which you can read here!

Cristóbal Balenciaga the “Master of Women’s Fashion”

foundation and childhood of the designer

Since the founding of the luxury label, Balenciaga has set trends for the entire fashion world. With his elegant haute couture designs, the founder Cristóbal Balenciaga immediately enchanted the fashion world. Cristóbal Balenciaga’s elegant creations have earned him the title of “Master of Women’s Fashion” and are still highly regarded after his death. Before this groundbreaking success, the Spaniard grew up with his mother, a widowed seamstress, in a small village in Gipuzkoa, Spain.

Balenciaga makes a name for himself

In 1919, the designer opened his first boutique in San Sebastián. Two further openings followed shortly afterwards in Madrid and Barcelona. Due to the Spanish civil war, however, the branches had to close. It was not until 1937 that Balenciaga was able to reopen its doors in Paris for customers from all over the world. This year, Balenciaga also presented its first haute couture collection. Balenciaga made a name for itself in France with its revolutionary designs. The Spanish roots were also evident in Balenciaga’s collections and provided his designs with detailed decorations. Balenciaga’s fashionable creations established themselves between 1940 and 1960 as a high-priced French haute couture label for articles in the higher price segment. Despite all this, the designer closed the doors of his Parisian home in 1968, before he died four years later at the age of 77.

The fashion house paused almost two decades before a new wave of designers was hired to catapult the brand into the 21st century. The label was only revived in 1990, with the brand initially focusing on perfume production.

It was not until 1997 that Balenciaga, under the direction of the new fashion designer Nicolas Ghesquière and with the financial support of a new owner, launched a successful prêt-à-porter fashion collection for women and men that attracted the attention of Parisian fashion groups. From then on, Ghesquière regularly presented his expressive and futuristic designs, which earned the designer the title “Messiah of Fashion”. In the creation of his designs he took an example from the founder of the company, Cristóbal Balenciaga, which strongly influenced his designs and brought them back to their classic origins. Only a limited number of spectators were admitted to the fashion shows, as the seats available for the Balenciaga Show were very popular, but always completely occupied.

Cristóbal Balenciaga backstage planning his show.

The successor to the “Messiah of Fashion” was the American designer Alexander Wang, who headed the brand until August 2015. Demna Gvasalia has been the creative director of the fashion brand since October 2015.

Balenciaga Sneaker

The new trend is called Athleisure. The word consists of athletics and leisure, i.e. sport and leisure. This trend can be found in the Chunky Sneakers, as you can see everywhere at the moment. Balenciaga is at the forefront and sells the chunky shoes to customers all over the world. The 90’s comeback of sneakers has arrived and shows itself in all shapes and colors, with eye-catching patterns, or quite simple. The only condition is that they must be massive!

Balenciaga Triple S

The thick padded and futuristic sole is an absolute indication for the trendy shoe models. The portable status symbols are available for almost 650 euros. It is not unusual for the shoes to be sold for 1,000 euros, as they are sold out in the stores. The popular models are especially in the classic, white version almost impossible to shop, for times they are so easy to combine. To the little black they simply loosen up the elegant look, or can be integrated super easy into the everyday jeans T-shirt look!

Balenciaga Speed, the comfortable sock shoe

It’s undeniable how comfortable these sneakers look, but yes, they are too! Completely different from the conventional inserts made of leather and other materials, the sock sneaker adapts perfectly to the foot without constricting it and restricting it when walking long distances. Basically, the shoes are a pair of socks with a sole. It all started with similar models of the sports brands Nike and Adidas. Nike has been experimenting with the soft mesh fabric for decades, creating the 2000 Presto, for example, and the 1985 Sock Racer to make running more comfortable. The version of Balenciaga is available from 500 euros, in different colors and prints to buy. Not everyone is enthusiastic about sock shoes, but like everything today, it’s a matter of taste and left to everyone. Not to mention the outward appearance, however, there is no denying how comfortably the sneaker adapts to the foot.

Track Sneaker the successor of the Triple S

In the new collection, Balenciaga presented its new sneaker models, including the successors to the Trend Triple Sneakers: the Balenciaga Track. The shoes are a combination of sporty and fashionable elements. The ’90s blur in the ’80s. The neon-coloured details are reminiscent of the versions of the 80s and quickly become a cult. Like everything that the luxury label brings to the market, these models are sold out in no time and adorn the feet of young and old, of all cultures and countries!

Bag models from Balenciaga

The company attracted particular attention when the blue bag inspired by the Ikea bags appeared on the market and made headlines. The design of the giant blue bag is to be understood as an ironic rebellion against the self-destructive fashion industry. Both positive and negative criticism was expressed, but the brand’s goal of attracting attention was definitely achieved!

Balenciagas Ville Bag

The “Ville Bag” is very feminine and of the form a real ladies handbag. The appearance depends of course on the design, colour and imprint. The bag has a curved shape and is available in many different versions, colours and materials. For example, the bag is available with a large logo, or even more urban with a graffiti design. The classic version of the bag is made of calfskin and has a shoulder strap in addition to the carrying handle, which can be removed as needed. The absolute highlight is the lock with which the bag is delivered and which should serve as a detail!

Shopping Tote Bag of Balenciaga

Demna Gvasalia, Balenciaga’s young creative director, was inspired by the “Shopping Tote Bag” with its lightweight and cheap nylon bags, which are light in weight and also very practical for every woman’s everyday use. Gvasalia has also used this aesthetic to create its own brand “Vetements”, inspired by light, simple models and clothes with a practical aspect. Whether the look is perceived as “High End” – version of the bag as clever or tasteless, depends on whether you accept the style of the young designer as a whole and support it in all respects, or not. The bag is available in different sizes and also in striped Arena leather, as a clear visual indication of the inspiration behind the design.

Balenciaga Shop

There is one of the biggest Balenciaga stores in Paris. So if you’re in the mood for a spontaneous Balenciaga shopping trip, you can let off steam in the fashion metropolis and shop to your heart’s content! However, the rather limited offer applies here as well, since the cool pieces sell out super fast and if you’re unlucky are no longer available in your size.

For those who don’t want to leave the country for the next Balenciaga sneakers, you can find them in one of the stores in Germany and try your luck there. There are two Balenciaga stores in Germany, one in downtown Hamburg and the other in the Aproppos Store in Düsseldorf.

If you don’t want to leave the house while shopping, you also have the option of convenient shopping in the online store and shopping from the couch. Pay attention here to special Sale actions, in order to save with the sinfully expensive models a few euro.

Balenciaga fashion shows & Vlogs

Online, especially on the platform YouTube, you can find numerous videos about Balenciaga. The international label has taken the world of fashion by storm with its shrill and daring designs and year after year offers new collections that inspire customers.

Balenciaga at Paris Fashion Week

The current autumn / winter collection was presented at the Paris Fashion Week 2019. In the context of the extravagant show, the designer’s designs also reflected the unusual style again, ensuring that the coming winter will be anything but gray, but people show their colors!

Gucci – current goods & founding story

Gucci is one of the top brands of our time. The million-dollar fashion company regularly turns the fashion world upside down. Whether revolutionary designs or social media trends, Gucci inspires every season anew and is the absolute favourite brand of many Bolggers, fashion influencers and models. The creation of the brand, trends and revolutionary designs fascinate fashion enthusiasts.

Gucci, brand and history

The history of the Gucci brand goes back to 1921. The brand was founded by Guccio Gucci and first made a name for itself with its exquisite leather goods and luxurious handbags. Since Guccio Gucci was a master saddler, his designs were often inspired by equestrian sports. The brand gained great popularity only after 1953. The clothing line was not introduced until 1970. Shortly thereafter, the Gucci fragrances were also released. In the 1980s, the brand suffered a severe setback due to internal disagreements within the founding family. Gucci has been part of the luxury goods group Kering since 2004.

Alessandro Michele, new designer younger target group

In the 1990s, Gucci once again became a coveted luxury label under the creative hand of designer Tom Ford. His creations have shaped the sensual-elegant character of the brand to this day. Tom Ford conquered the fashion world with daring cuts and designs in dandy style. With his successor, Alessandro Michele, Gucci experienced an absolute image change. The designs became more androgynous and shriller. Intense colours and eccentric patterns became part of the new collections. The designer’s creations won the “International Fashion Designer of the Year” award in 2015. Youthfulness, cheerfulness and lightheartedness were also conveyed in Gucci’s advertising campaigns. In 2016, the label was named in the press as the most sought-after fashion brand in the world.

Gucci supports women’s rights with new collection

With the Resort collection, creative director Michele shows his support for women’s rights. The T-shirts carry the imprint “My Body My Choice”. Another part of the collection is a dress on which the female reproductive system is embroidered and decorated with flowers. In some designs the date “May 22, 1978” was also shown. On that date, the Italian Maternity Protection Act entered into force. A crucial date for the liberalisation of women.

Gucci with the most expensive belt in the fashion industry

Gucci has been the trendsetter for some time now. The popularity of the brand is particularly evident in the social media. Instagram and Fashion Blogs are full of photos of the Gucci belt. No wonder! The simple leather belt with the double GG buckle gives every boring outfit the right dose of glamour. The belt is available in a variety of models, whether in soft or crocodile leather, 4 centimeters wide, 2.5 centimeters wide or with a G upside down, Gucci offers a variety of belt models.

However, the classic black Gucci belt is timeless. The It-Piece can be styled both as a waist belt and as usual around the hip. It goes well with any outfit and can be combined with just about anything. The look looks great, for example, with a Mom jeans and a simple shirt, or white T-shirt.

Gucci belt for him

How do I best combine?

As a man, the accessory selection is often not easy, the options are usually rather limited. Especially when it comes to professional life it is difficult to set the right accents and to live out one’s own style. With a timeless belt classic in black, you can not do much wrong. Wrist watch, cufflinks, a handkerchief, as well as the belt belong to the few accessories with which the man can upgrade his outfit. Then why not go straight to a Gucci model? The trend belt is no longer imaginable without the waistband of the fashion-conscious man of today. The accessory offers numerous possible combinations, whether casual with jeans or with a business look.
